A great day trip to visit American History at it´s best. Coupled with a tour of downtown New London and a journey over to Fort Griswold in Groton for history buffs this is a great place to go. I would like to see more information on the fort /eg. interactive displays etc...and even regular costumed guides and a cafe that... More

Visit Fort Trumbull in New London, CT. It is a great historic place to visit and tour to soak up some of New London's history.

So many, upon hearing me say how beautiful it as here say, Where is it? If you have never been, go! It is gorgeous, scenic and historically fascinating, if forts are your thing. If they are not, you will still enjoy the immaculate grounds, sweeping views and serenity. I've never taken the tour, or even been inside the museum shop... More

Kept in a very good shape, it may look like any other fort but once you read about their history and what happened here you will find it very interesting.

This was a revisit for me. See my November 2013 review for fees, background, history, and details of the exhibits. It was a first visit for my friend. It was near closing time for the fort and the museum so we visited only the grounds. Even without going inside the fort, this state park can be enjoyed with a walk... More

The fort gave me a feeling of being there during the revolutionary war. The guide explained things in a way that made me understand how life must have been. There is a great museum in the visitors center. The displays are on the history and the work that was done there about underwater sound detection.
