You'll probably spend more time outside walking the grounds than inside this small museum. Built on the historic site of one of the first Spanish settlements in Florida, many of the old walls remain from the 1679 original. First visited in the 1500s and with historical significance in the Revolution, Civil and Seminole Wars, the place is a gold mine for history buffs. The $2 entry to enter the museum includes a short movie on the history of the place. The grounds are free, and next to the public boat ramp. The fort sits on the confluence of the St Marks and Wakulla Rivers just as they head out to the Gulf of Mexico. Great fishing all around the fort and easy to see why this was such an important cotton route before the civil war.
