Location has made Fort Moultrie and Sullivan's Island a prime location to bear witness and hold much of this nation's history. From the entry point for slave ships to it's role in WWll, you can find the stories at the museum. Then walk the grounds and find your way to a beautiful beach.

My wife and I took my 8 and 2 yr old children to kill some time before a Dr.'s appointment at MUSC it was easy to get to and close close enough to the hospital. The movie was very informative both children actually sat quite and watched. Although when it was time to get outside the children were wide open,... More

Great area to go if you have kids that need to let off steam. Also, most of the buildings are still standing and open. It is a trip to walk down the hallways that were once full of military guys standing watch. It is close to the water so leave time to walk the trails. This is a great national... More

This is a neat place to check out if you have any free time while visiting Charleston. The layout of the Fort itself is very well done, as well as the reconstruction during World War 2 to more modern rooms and offices, were very cool to see. The exhibits themselves were very well done and informative, along with the visitor... More

An easy drive and park to visit this historic site. The movie was very informative. The fort defended the coast thru several wars. Made it easy to place yourself back in time.

I love self guided historical sites. Right in the beach. You gain a sense of what battles were like in the Revolutionary War.

We didn't have time to go to Fort Sumter, so we chose to go to Fort Moultrie as a second option. Boy are we glad we did! This fort has some incredible history dating all the way back to the Revolutionary War and as recently as WWII. The $5 family entrance fee is nothing for all you learn here. The... More

Free parking at the visitor center with restroom facilities located here, nominal entrance fee ($5.00) and free if you’re a National Parks Pass holder. This is a bargain compared to taking a ferry ride to Ft. Sumter. Do take the extra time to go through the visitor’s center to appreciate the history of this fort and the part that it... More

This National Monument ties in great with Fort Sumter. You have all the time to walk around and view it. Nice visitor center. Be sure to take the Fort Sumter tour cruise from the Pattriots Point Navel & Maritime Museum's deportation site. That way, you're close to this monument. It also is very close to Boone Hall Plantation, another place... More

Was not expecting there to be so much to see at Fort Moultrie. There is a nice self-guided tour with lots of signs and explanations. The Fort was used in World War II and they have the rooms set up like they would have been in that time period. Around the outside of the fort you can read about the... More
