We were driving out to Sullivan's Island and decided to stop at Fort Moultrie along the way. It was a very low key experience but were impressed by the visitors center which helps explain Ft. Moultrie's long and varied history. No guided tour, but they give you a map, so we walked around the abandoned fort buildings, many of which... More

We visited the Fort Moultrie and found it very interesting. The visitor center had some very nice displays and a short film. The film was pretty corny but had a lot of interesting information. The fort itself was nice but needs more information and a more clear path. It is not fully wheelchair accessible and there are a lot of... More

The visitors center film and exhibits were very well done, and I found them extremely interesting. I spent very little time at the fort itself, because of pending thunderstorm, but you get a feel for how coastal fortifications have changed through the years. The section dealing with the huge slave trade that took place in Charleston was also very interesting.

As the more prominent Fort Sumter has a short time limit due to the boat ride to get there we opted to visit Fort Moultrie, the other guarantor of limited access to Charleston. It was a very interesting visit to see the changes made during the over 200 years of the fort. Very good for our group was the Junior... More

Love old forts! We visited here last week. We went into the visitor center where you park and the lady who worked there said there was no one to take our fee for the tour($3), so just go over there and stop back on our way out. Off we went. This is a smaller fort, with lots to see. There... More

We came to visit with our two kids who are 7 and 9. The kids loved walking around and following the tour signs. They went through every nook and cranny of the fort that wasn't roped off. We were able to read the history of how the fort was built as well as the type of cannons that were used... More

I go to Fort Moultrie every time I'm Charleston...I've must have been 30 or more times since I was a child...it's not a thrill a minute...but it's a big part of our nation's history and should be seen. The down side is..when I was young the whole web of tunnels were open to the public...you could get lost in the... More

We were in Charleston for a few days in late June therefore got the opportunity to stop by touring Fort Moultrie and Sullivan's Island. We got lucky on Sunday 6/28 and got in for free. We learned so much about the Revolution, Civil war, and WW2 which we spent about 1.5 hours. We got really good view of Sumter from... More

Had originally planned on doing Fort Sumter but decided to do this one instead. Very glad we did. First off the admission is only $3 versus $20 for Sumter. Plus you can easily see Ft. Sumter from Ft. Moultrie. If your into American history this is a must stop and see. The Fort was used in the American Revolution and... More

Wife & I enjoyed strolling around the fort grounds. Beautiful views. The underground spots are nice & cool! Very inexpensive fee. Watch the 20 minute movie before your tour. It's worth it.
