This well preserved fort is readily contrasted with the earthworks of Fort Macalister in RIchmond Hill. The new rifled cannon mad short work of Pulaski's thick brick walls while staying out of range of the forts older guns. Easy access and a great tour.

If you're interested in history, especially historical battles, especially civil war historical battles, this is very interesting. We missed the guided tour but by going through the visitor center and reading the literature, we were able to get the story. I would return, given the opportunity, to do the guided tour. Interesting battle because it changed the way battles were... More

A must-see during your visit to Tybee. Very educational. Loved being able to walk thru and on top of the blockade. Learned a lot.

Fort Pulaski is a fantastic place to visit for anyone who loves history. Thank goodness the Union won. The fort is very easy to get to, as it is located right off East US Hwy 80 heading towards Tybee Island. This is my second trip to Fort Pulaski, back in 2004 during my visit here, Fort Pulaski was free to... More

Fascinating historical fort. Take the time to watch the short video before heading to the fort so you have a better idea of what you are seeing. The visitor center/museum exhibits are interesting and informative. Views from the top of the fort are spectacular. A well-spent afternoon!

The admission rate is very reasonable..$7 for adults. Children under 15 are free. We walked through the Fort exploring all of the nooks & crannies. You can also walk along the top level of the fort. It was very informative & well preserved. They have a gift shop with souvenirs & educational material. The walking trails are nice as well.... More

Like Fort Jackson, this is the main fort guarding the entrance to Savannah.harbors. Considered impregnable for much of the civil war it was finally forced to surrender by the technology of the rifled cannon the Union developed during the war. This fort is beautifully preserved with cannon hits and damage still visible. The tour by one of the Park Rangers... More

Beautifully built fort, preserved with original shot in the walls. My husband's great great uncle was one of the Immortal 600 so it was a very meaningful visit for us. Nice gift shop in the fiort .

We took our 4 teenagers to Fort Pulaski last week during our vacation on Tybee. The Fort is a very cool piece of history and you can walk nearly every square foot of the large fort. It's amazing to visualize how the Fort was approached and attacked and ultimately surrendered due to the vast damage caused from cannons over a... More
