I did not know what to expect when visiting the fort. A tour guide from another park recommended it. When getting there the location is gorgeous. I really felt like I stepped back in time. Cannot wait to visit fort Pulaski again in the near future.

Fort Pulaski is similar in layout to the original Fort Sumter, so if you've seen one, you would do well to see the other. Both are a 5-sided shield design brick masonry fortress, with multiple tiers for their guns. Pulaski is in the center of an island on the Savannah River though, and a moat surrounds it to cut it...

We had a wonderful guide for this tour! Wonderful sight full of artifacts. I didn't know the fort was also used as a jail...lots of information about that time was given to us as well. They have a short movie you can view before you go to the fort that is also provided a great amount of information.

Very well maintained and beautiful. The kids thought it was amazing and enjoyed every minute of their visit. Very cheap admission - $5.00 per adult and free for kids under 15 years old.

You could easily spend half a day or more exploring this historic fort and its grounds. There are many trails that are beautiful in the spring. The fort is well preserved and interesting, but it would have been nice to have interpreters stationed inside the fort to answer questions. We learned more from the gift shop employee about the fort... More

A most impressive and stunning brick fort with a unique drawbridge, a moat and mounds where you can also walk undrground as well as the numerous rooms in the fort itself. A fascinating two hour walk, a trip in time, that we did by ourselves reading the pannels and the brochure explaining the historic moments, characters involved and a way... More

Very interesting piece of US history. We love forts and this one was great! It was the typical fort, but offered a tour for first time visitors with a lot of information.

The fort itself is interesting and our volunteer guide was excellent in explaining things and giving a sense of the time. He was reasonably balanced, although it is a little startling to someone from New England to hear talk of the confederates as "us" and the U.S. troops as "them." We visited as part of a day outside Savannah and... More

Very nice half day adventure. This is a must for history lovers. If you have small children, they would probably be bored. It was very inexpensive. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable.
