We visited here impromptu and managed to catch up to the narrated tour. While the signs around the fort help depict the construction and the definitive battle, the guide was very knowledgeable and added a lot to our visit. Suggest calling ahead to confirm the times of the guided tour. We went from here to Tybee Island, and there is... More

This is a fort which was significant during the Civil War. They have a small visitors center, built in keeping with the architecture of the fort. The fort and the grounds are very well maintained. Many period pieces and recreated rooms to see. The have tours of course and the firing of the cannon. If you enjoy these kind of... More

This site was great. I've always been a huge history nerd, so getting to explore this wonderfully preserved fort was a real treat. My fiancé was able to enjoy it as well, however it would have been better if not for the august heat.

We visited the Fort Pulaski National Monument on July 4th for their independence day celebrations. The site provides a history of the fort during the American Civil War while it was in the hands of both the Union and Confederate forces. There is a small visitor's center on the edge of the fort itself with a video about it's history... More

I'm not a huge history buff, but I love forts! This one has been kept up well and redone right on par with the times! Well kept grounds and immaculate inside! It had some things that I've never seen before including a tripod that lifted the cannon pieces. Very Cool! Definitely recommend this to everyone!

This place is amazing. We had a wonderful time walking on the trails, seeing the exihibits, soaking up all the history and wondering at this huge fort. Had a picnic lunch, and saw all the sights. Tickets were good for 7 days, but didn't have a chance to get back before we left town. Worth the trip, everyone should see... More

Make sure to go and see this Amazing National Park. Make sure if you bring your National Park Passport (if you have one) to get 4 cool stamps to add to your collection. Please have on good walking shows and bug spray/ sun block since you will be out side for most of the self paced tour. Don't forget to... More

Nice conversation of information with our young adult children. We enjoyed the self guided tour. With the information provided on the plaques and brochure, it was interesting to visualize that time in history.
