Nice history review . Could of been a great more displays. But I it was worth the hour touring the fort. Good history on the colonization, slave trade and how the Virgin islands changed over time.

17th century Danish fort that at one time or another was a church, governor’s residence, court, and prison. Displays are minimal, but tour from Levi brought everything to life.

Levi provided a great tour for us, explaining the history of the fort and the island. I appreciated his thorough descriptions and wonderful personality. A must-see to understand more of the many ways the fort has been used since 1618. Thank you, Levi!
