We loved the fort, so well maintained. We took the 45 minute tour with the ranger and he was a mountain of information, he had pictures, knew everything about the cannons, the bricks, the restoration, etc. It was a fabulous, informative tour. We would definitely return another time, very interesting fort and tour.

Fort in great shape with rooms to display what it was like for the soldiers. Large fort with two moats around it. Visitors center. Have been here several times over 35 years. Lots of different cannons to see. One of best forts I have been to.

This fort is very well preserved and maintained. Its as if the Federal forces just recently left. Very cool to see things almost as they were 150 years ago. Im a huge buff, and have been to many battlefilds and forts, and this one rates in the top of being a blast from he past. New to the trade or... More

I am not big on history, but our friends who are thought this was very interesting. A lot of the structure looked like it was only decades old instead hundreds.

I admit that I not much of a history buff, so often the historical forts seem so like each other to me. This one stood out as different and interesting to me. The grounds are so well maintained, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the history and information about the fort is excellent. We arrived late in the... More

We happened to be there on a day they shot the cannons, but it's worth a visit without that action. So much to learn and read about. Well worth the time to go there.

Two hours will do it. Either self guided tour or tour with a guide. Found it interesting. Fido can come along. Fairly priced.

We've been here several times-- if you are over 60, get a golden age passport, it will let you tour the area for very little expense. Very interesting, cannon, ramparts, everything an early rock fort was/ is- a very good restoration

I was on my way from Savannah to the Tybee Island beach areas when I saw signs showing Fort Pulaski off of the highway. The fort is easy to walk around and the views of the area are beautiful. It was interesting to read about the forts involvement during the civil war and stories relating to its strategic placement as... More
