Plan Your Visit

Visitor Center Activities: Closed for renovations through the fall 2022. However, the bookstore has been relocated to the park library.
Please allow at least 15 minutes to view the exhibits inside the Visitor Center Museum, and 23 minutes to watch the orientation film, History Uncovered. The film runs every 30 minutes between the hours of 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. The Fort Frederica Association bookstore in the visitor center features unique gifts and educational resources.


Public Programs:
Ranger-led town tours are offered daily, depending on weather and staff availability. Tours are conducted at 11:15 AM and 2:15 PM and last approximately 30 minutes. A ranger will guide visitors from the Visitor Center and conclude at the King's Magazine and fort, stopping at town plots along the way. This is a 1/4 mile walk one way; be prepared to backtrack this distance.

Self-Guided Walking Tours:
Take yourself or your family on an adventure by touring the park at your leisure. Broad Street features excavated town persons' plots. It is approximately a 1/2 mile roundtrip from the visitor center, down Broad Street, to the fort and back. Listen to the cell phone tour or read the waysides along the route that describe life during the colonial-era at Frederica.
