Lemon-colored Fort Christiansvaern is a well-preserved stronghold on the waterfront overlooking a northern edge of St. Croix.

The building is located on the grounds of the Christiansted National Historic Site, and previous visitors say the best way to experience Christiansvaern is with a walking or driving tour. Exploring the fort's exterior and perimeter should only take 30 minutes tops, but as long as you're here, you should also stop by the Danish Custom House, the Scale House and the Danish West India & Guinea Company Warehouse, where former St. Croix resident and founding father Alexander Hamilton worked as a young man.

You can tour the fort any day of the week from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. for a $3 entry fee. The museum operates on the same schedule except on weekends when it opens at 9 a.m.
