Very pretty grounds. Had a picnic lunch. Very informative video and displays. Clean restrooms. Most areas are handicap accessible, not the second story. Beautiful views! Canon demonstrations. Cute gift shop.

Historic fort was interesting. But we were disappointed that, despite the increase in fees the day prior to our visit, there was no tour that morning.

The fort structure itself is a testimony to the engineering and construction of a military establishment during the period when it was erected.

Well worth the visit. The fort is in great shape and gives you a feel for what it must have been like in the Civil War. My 14 year old son loved it, too.

The Gentlemen receiving at the gate was a wonderful person! Very kind and easy to talk to, Naples has a great person going there soon to Big Cypress. The fort is different and enchanting in a way. You have to put yourself in that time to feel it's splendor. A reenactment from time to time would be nice

My family and I made a point to visit Fort Pulaski on our vacation. What a great way to get a little history while on vacation. My whole family enjoyed it. When you get there you pay for admission at the front gate. Your fee is good for several days. What a bargain. Next, you can watch an excellent video... More

This was a great side trip. Take bug spray. The rangers and gift shop employees were very friendly. It was very cool to see the cannon balls still embedded in the wall of the fort. I enjoyed this tour.

We visit every couple of years. Our kids love the cannon firing. It's a great place to spend an afternoon if you're tired of the beach.
