So glad that we took our pirate tour guide's advice and visited Ft. Moultrie. Fascinating to see a fort that played such a long and important role in history. Great visitors center, too. We combined the fort with a day on the beach, so it worked out great.

I've been to many forts and this one was up there. I think what made this visit excellent was we happened to come on a Sunday morning when a volunteer tour guide was taking people on a tour of the site. Joe was our tour guide and he gave interesting facts and stories about the Fort which has been in... More

I have gone 4 year with our Third graders from school. The museum is chalked full of historical facts and artifacts. I especial enjoy the movie shown in the museum. Then you get to take a tour of the actual fort, it's pretty cool.

This fort and its area have Revolutionary, Quasi-War, and Civil War history, not to mention 20th century war ties as well. I was here just an hour, but I learned so much! If you have the transportation and the time, go see it!

My husband and I were visiting Charleston a couple of weeks ago and decided to do a little driving around surrounding area's. We had seen the signs about Fort Moultrie but was unfamiliar with it. It is worth the visit. The history alone is amazing concerning this Fort. We could see Fort Sumter from Moultrie and learned of the other... More

I had read numerous reviews on Trip Advisor that said Sumner wasn't all that. Moultrie only costs $3 to get in, you can see Sumner from the top, and has as much history if not more. This fort has history ranging from the Revolutionary War up until WWII. Get your fort fix here!

the old fort was a great piece history, looking at some of the old cannons was interesting, and reading about the history of it all was quite impressive

Like Fort Sumter across the Charleston Harbor Moultrie is a great historic site and much easier to reach as it is on Sullivan Island that you can drive to. While this Fort is technically part of the Sumter experience it is much easier to access and more can be seen at a leisure pace. This fort is part of Revolutionary... More

Well-preserved, with a deep history of which I was formally unaware. The park rangers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Fantastic self-directed tour covers the entire fort and includes underground bunkers, cannon batteries, the flag tower station, which gives wonderful views of the island and harbor, and more. The park itself is situated on a beautifully preserved part of the island,... More

If your a history buff then you will LOVE this place! Make sure you walk around and read all the signs. Since your in Charleston you will know all about the Hunley, it took off not to far from here! What a great day trip then head on over to the beach!
