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

My wife and I visited the fort to take in the history of it while also having easy access to stroll the island's beach. We enjoyed walking around the fort at our pace and reading the history markers. Definitely worth the $5 family price.

I enjoyed this tour on such a beautiful South Carolina day. There is so much to see that a person must return for a second look. The war was harsh but the soldiers smart in there fight. The submarine information was a added plus as to the harsh conditions soldiers had to endure. I would highly recommend this tour.

They have a really nice visitor center, they show a short movie, and there are plenty of exhibits in the center to look at before going across the street to see the fort. It's a great stop while on Sullivan's Island.

I had forgotten my history and this was an excellent review - informative 20 minute video, lots of exhibits and tremendous view of the fort and the harbor. Make it a stop - the kids would enjoy it!

After numerous visits to the area i finally decided to make a visit to Fort Moultrie. I was surprised to see how large this facility is and realized that I did not have enough time to make my visit worthwhile. I gave it a quick "once over" but plan to return as soon as possible to make a day of... More
