Great place to visit in Savannah especially if you are a history buff and want to know about the history of Savannah. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and it was a great experience to hear the cannons go off as well.

Learned a lot and it was very interesting. Our tour guide was very good. She showed us how to load the canon which the girls loved and then had us sit down and she let it go. Was very loud.

it's a small fort which is pretty well restored. They fire a cannon periodically. Whole thing takes 30-45 minutes.

Learned a lot. The 80 kids with us were impress and enjoyed the visit. The instructors took us on a tour of both the fort and how life was during those times.

We enjoyed the seeing the gentleman/guide shoot the canon. He was very informative. But for the price it would have been nice to be handed a guide paper. When we weren’t given one so we assumed there would be a lot of signage info but...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... 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.
