We have toured a few forts in our travels and Fort Pulaski rates among the top. The talk concerning the use of the Fort as a prison for Confederate military was very interesting and something that I had never thought of before. We were also very lucky to be there on a cannon firing day and that was great. The... More

Amazing history. Guided tours very informative. Live demonstrations of muskets and cannons were impressive. Great place to spend a couple hours walking in and around the fort.

Even for someone not drawn to military re-enactments and sites, this was a great visit. Very informative with connections to Civil War, Baseball, Engineering and African-American history. Visitor's Center was informative and quick. Pictures by the park staff made it interesting and personal. This site was pretty, and low-cost at $5/person. Give it a good 2 hours to cover everything...

What a great day we spent at this national monument. It was a beautiful sunny day and we wandered about the fort for hours - interpretation of this site is well done and it has been maintained beautifully. Families were enjoying the day as well, lot of trails and room to roam both on the fort proper and on the... More

This fort has some amazing history and is very well preserved. Make sure you set aside at least 2 hours to watch the 20-minute video in the visitors center and then take a self-guided tour around the fort itself. It is definitely worth seeing!

This fort still stands and you can almost feel the history! Many of the cannon still stand 'guard' and the park rangers provide excellent information if you need more than is provided on the many plaques around the fort. There are also several walking trails in this National Monument.

My wife and I stopped here on MLK day and enjoyed the free admission. The guard made it a point to tell us our dog was welcome everywhere but the gift shop, to include inside the fort. We toured the fort but were most interested in walking the trail to a historic light house. Our dog enjoyed the exercise and... More

Really Enjoyed It. Very well preserved with nice and very knowledgeable staff and volunteers. Highly recommend it for all visitors. Pretty environment. Will give two recommendations - 1) Plan on spending at least 2-3 hours or more visiting here. 2) Wear comfortable shoes that are water proof/resistant. But again HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!

A good national park to visit. The old fort is well preserved and in good condition. There's a short film about it. Don't recommend the outdoor tour unless you are very warmly dressed in January. There is a breeze and it is cold in January. Otherwise, a great national park site to visit. Very friendly staff.

My first national monument experience! This park seems small, and it does not take too much time to walk the whole fort. But you can definitely spend the whole morning sitting and watching the sceneries around. Highly recommend it for families! It's got great historical information inside!
