We were not planning a trip to Fort Moultrie true but decided to after visiting Fort Sumter. We were very surprised by the size of this site! There are signs for a self guided tour of the fort that takes you both up high and down below into the fort. There are a lot of areas to explore. You can... More

There is a gem of a museum at the visitor's center. It isn't very big, but very informative. I would skip the 1970s era film though unless you want a feeling of nostalgia. The fort itself is fun to climb around in too. Well worth a visit.

We went at the end of the day and wished we had gone sooner. We could have spent at least 2 hours there looking inside the visitors center and then at the fort. It also has a great view of the ocean and ships passing by.

I visited this after touring Sumter, expecting a dilapidated fort with a time limit. I was completely wrong. I should have allotted at least two more hours. The batteries on the outskirts are open for touring during business hours, there is an exceptional collection of historic artillery, an informative visitor's center/museum, and the fort itself is just a treasure.

It is easy to forget the area has played a role in our country's history from the start. We were at the fort after it closed but there is still plenty to see just walking around and reading the info around the grounds. The small beach access area was really nice in the evening too. You could see lots of... More

This is a great little place to visit if you love history. We started at the visitors center. Admission was $5 for family. The kids enjoyed looking at the old memorablilia. There is a 20 minute movie available, but we didn't watch it. After walking thru the visitors center, you can walk across the street to the actual fort. It's... More

We went to Ft. Sumter in the morning and Ft. Moultrie in the afternoon. History overload! We would not recommend both attractions on the same day. Make a couple days out of it. Not because they are overwhelming in size and you will be hurried to view them. But because they are so similar in information and what you see... More

If you are a history buff then this is the place to go. Check out the video telling about it before you venture in. The park rangers are quite helpful and are eager to speak with you about the Fort. Also the gift shop is there and you are encouraged to purchase guides to assist you in your exploration. I... More

For $3 you can watch a 20 minute video, tour the museum, and get a guided tour by a knowledgeable member of the park's staff. They do a great job!

What a great park. Lots to see and lots to learn. We were there on Carolina day so admission was free but we would have gladly paid. Well worth your time.
