We don't really like guided tours so we skipped that part, but the Fort is a cool thing to see and experience. Some of the artifacts there are authentic. Really a neat historical experience. A must see for military families.

We were greeted at the gate by a friendly staffer who joked with us and made sure we had everything we needed. The site itself is well cared for, has plenty of artifacts and knowledgable staff. This was the site of a historic battle during the Civil War and should be on the itinerary of any American history buff.

We actually visited the Fort back in April of 2012. We really enjoyed walking around and looking at everything. Lots of rooms to explore and photo opportunities. It's very well maintained and I think its lots of fun for the whole family. Older kids would definitely enjoy it if they are at all interested in history. It's a bit of... More

I wasn't expecting to stop here, as I was on my way to photograph the lighthouse in Tybee Island. When I saw the sign for a National Monument, though, I had to stop. It's a well preserved example of the fort system which dots the east coast, and was a great place to photograph. After visiting the fort, I spoke... More

My wife and I had a great time at Fort Pulaski. If you have any interest in American history this will be a great experience. The exhibits are nice and the fort itself is in excellent condition and gives you a great picture of life at the time.

It's a bit of a drive , on the way to Tybee Island, but a must do for civil war and artillery history buffs. Live canon firing was a bonus.

Very interesting piece of history. It only cost $5 each and it allows you to come and visit for 5 days. We toured the fort one day and returned to walk the trail to the Cockspur Lighthouse on another day. There are 2 guided tours at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm but we were not there at the right time... More

My husband and I love history, and historical places. We have toured several military forts in the past 10 years, and this one, hands down, is our favorite! Words don't do this great fort justice. You just have to experience it!

This where you want to be for the zombie apocalypse!! The tunnel system of the first outer defenses are marvelous. The museum was very informative, and very fun to walk the upper battlements.
