Went to Ft. Pulaski one day to tour and then went the next day for the cannon firing. Unknown to me, the firing was done with an authentic flare (no pun intended). The men wore authentic civil war attire and, apparently, kept the firing historically accurate. The demonstration was informative and all reinactors were available to answer any questions.

We came here and were pleasantly surprised at the Fort. There is a neat movie area to watch a preview of what you will see. 2 cute little gift shops and upon entering the fort you might spot an alligator in the water. the fort is well taken care of and is something that you should def. check out.

What a great place!! Enjoyed every minute of our time there. When we arrived, we went into the front building, saw a short video about the fort, then walked around inside and learned a lot from the pictures and history. Then inside the fort, we were given a short history lesson about the fort which was so informative. Don't miss... More

Was a great way to spend the day. Saw baby alligators, had fun running around in the tunnels, and watching the cannon demonstration. Bring sunscreen bug spray and water!

If you want to view a real fort with an excellent guided tour to explain its significance, then make sure you visit Fort Pulaski, a fort used by the Confederate soldiers during the American Civil War. Not only is the fort awesome, but also its mighty canons are impressive. The guides are well versed in the detail of the operations... More

Very cool to visit if you're a history buff. It's a little off the beaten path but worth a stop. Pretty cool to see the old damage that still remains.

We stopped by on our way to Tybee Island Pier. This s well preserved historic National Park. Be sure to see the film prior to entering the fort it will enhance your visit! Cross the bridge over the moat and explore the fort!

We've visited the fort many times before. This particular visit was during their candlelit tour at Christmas. We were able to enter rooms usually not open for tours, serenaded by a four-piece Irish musical group, sang Christmas carols, and witnessed common Christmas traditions during the Civil War period. All staff were dressed in Civil War period costume and all rooms... More

It's too hot and humid in August to really enjoy a visit to this fort. Other than that, the fort is in decent shape and has enough cannons and battle scars to give one the idea of what it was like during the Civil War. We were entertained by an alligator eating a pigeon in the moat. We also took... More
