Interesting fort

Numerous interesting things to see while walking around the fort. I've been to several forts and this one was more detailed than some of the other ones.

The boys loved all the canons! And the nature walk down to the ocean was great too. And just $5 for a family, how great! We enjoyed it

A half hour drive from Charleston, it's a welcome change in good weather. An interesting video at the welcome center orients you to the site, and the self guided tour of the fort provides as much detail as you like. Great views of Fort Sumpter and the mouth of the harbor. $3.00 admission.

My husband and I toured Fort Moultrie on a Saturday morning. It was a nice way to spend a couple of hours and an interesting lesson in Charleston history. Can't beat the price at 2.50 each. A good place to bring kids.

We had not heard about Ft. Moultrie before arriving here. We were planning a Ft. Sumter tour for the afternoon and needed to kill some time in the morning. This was conveniently near the pier for the afternoon trip, so we decided to visit. It was outstanding, and I enjoyed it as much as the Ft. Sumter tour. I especially... More

Even though it was pouring down rain we enjoyed the exhibits and especially the short 20 minute movie that revealed a lot of history behind Fort Moultrie.

We enjoyed our tour from the ranger and came home with a lot of information. It cost $5 for the family to see the museum as well as the fort. Great views of the ocean and Charleston as well.

My partner and I stumbled across this park while driving around Sullivan's Island. The $5 admission for two is well worth it. The fort itself is fascinating. The view of the harbor is amazing. People with mobility issues will have problems as there are steps and uneven surfaces. We took a little over an hour to walk around. I'll go... More

We viewed the 25 minute film which could have been better. Did learn an interesting fact that the fort was made from palmetto trees which does not shatter when hit with cannon balls.
