This was an operational fort in the civil war. It is not very big. There are guides dressed in period uniforms that give a history of the fort then fire a real cannon. Then you can explore the fort on your own.

This old fort is very close to Savannah on the way to Tybee Island. It is well preserved. The staff / re-enactors are knowledgeable. There are cannon firings twice daily.

The Fort is well maintained and offers excellent live history lessons and cannon firing--using volunteers visiting the Fort. There are also a number of displays to view as you walk through the Fort. A fun experience that only take 1-2 hours.

We really enjoyed learning about how Fort Jackson played a part in Savannah's history from Mr. McDonough, our presenter. He made our trip memorable!

We had a wonderful time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We got to see 2 cannons fired on our tour. The guide kept it fun and interesting using volunteers, and the audience. Excellent for all ages. I definitely recommend when visiting Savannah.

This fort is well-maintained and is interesting. If, however, you're expecting a big fort with a lot to do and see, you might be disappointed. It's rather small with not much to do, but I still enjoyed learning about the history of Old Fort Jackson....More

Our visit to Fort Jackson was terrific. The gentleman doing the revolutionary war reenactment was very knowledgeable and kept us all laughing. He fired flint lock muskets and also fired a live cannon. My 10 yr old had a blast. If you are into history...More

Cannon firing presentations include a history of the site and its significance. When kids visit, we try to make our programming as interactive as possible, including mock drill and marching.
