I love history and have visited many forts, both large and small. This Old Fort Jackson is so much more than a fort to visit. They have actors that walk you through the history of the fort and battles from the Civil War, even including...More
They shot muskets and a cannon and described the process of loading... and what the jobs and life of the soldiers were like.
There are rooms with historical memorabilia including a room with medical instruments used at the time, a blacksmith, kitchen, office and a...More
We were extremely happy to make this one of our stops on this wonderful vacation. Old Fort Jackson has been the only fort we have gone to that had a demo as well as hands on. This is definitely a must stop and visit location...More
Our family of four with a 10 year old and 15 year old boys visited here. The fort is simple and small but it's history and tour guide packs a punch that's well worth the visit. They perform two canon shootings daily at 11am and...More
We stopped in January, and were happy to find Old Fort Jackson was privately operated and therefore OPEN during the US gov’t shutdown! The approach to the tour is fantastic, visitors are recruited to participate in an infantry drill lead by a docent in military...More
Our family of five (kids ages 7, 13 & 19) loved our visit to Old Fort Jackson. We have visited several other forts over the years and have never been so engaged in a fort’s history. The guide doing the re-enactment was amazing! We learned...More

I drag my wife to forts most everywhere we go. It was a chilly weekday morning and we were the only ones there, so we had about an hour and a half private tour by one of the most knowledgeable "interpreters" anywhere. Usually it seems...More

It’s fairly close to the historic section of Savannah. It’s probably a 10-15 minute drive, mostly along the same road. Signage could be a bit better so keep your eyes out. Once you turn left off the main road, the fort is about a 2 minute drive. The fort sits right on the river. Fort Pulaski is about another 10-15 minute drive on the same main road if you turn left as you exit Fort Jackson.
