Interested in history? You'll love this place! Fort Pulaski is part of the National Parks System and as such, is well-preserved, has a great display/information "museum," reenactors who perform cannon firings from a Howitzer and a Parrot Gun after teaching visitors about the respective weaponry, Restrooms and a couple of small shops are on-site. Tips: 1. Take time to walk... More

We had our 4 year old son along, and he loved this place. The cannons and walking on the bridge across the moat were so much fun for him (and us). It's well worth a visit. We did this, and then went on our way to Tybee Island's ocean beaches. The palm trees in the area made it feel more... More

This is an old fort built following the war of 1812 to defend the mouth of the Savannah river. It has an incredibly rich history stretching through the civil war also. You can walk the walls on two separate levels and see examples of the different cannon that armored the different positions. It is only a short drive out from... More

Paid a lot to look at bricks and water. The informational video was good. No one around to ask questions about the fort. Hard to figure out which way to go when you left the visitors center. Go when it is not to hot or raining.

We spent approximately 4 hours here. When you arrive stop in at the visitors center for the short video about the forts construction and overall history. Robert E. Lee is sent here to help with the construction right out of West Point. Very impressive engineering. He then returns during the early years of the war to advise the commander on... More

We wanted to enjoy the fort but found it lacking compared to other forts we've visited. A lot of the site description displays were empty. It's a shame because the story of this fort is very interesting. They must really be short on funds. The trails were an added benefit because my family enjoys hiking but the attack of the... More

We visited today and had a really nice time. Interesting place that not only has the fort but also visitor center and trails and other stuff. We didn't do everything partly due to heat and running out of time but will return. The fort is interesting and you can walk all around the top of it, views are very nice.... More
