Museum was very impressive, had a lot of history of the area and of the fort. Intro movie though was very outdated and hard to sit through. The actual fort itself was fascinating to walk through and see the changes that were made throughout history and the various wars. Staff was extremely helpful and went above and beyond in assisting... More

Fort Moultrie is on Sullivans Island (fun beach community) a short drive from Charleston. The fort is still present unlike Fort Sumter with beautiful views and opportunity to wander the grassy surroundings and the nearby beach. There is a visitors center which I did not see since I was there late in the day.

A great place to take in a little history while enjoying the ocean breeze. On a hot day though, you might find yourself spending more of it with your feet in the water than exploring the tunnels of the fort.

I took my family to this Monument. It was a great look back from the revolutionary war through 1946. Make sure you go to the visitor center. Some really cool stuff and the movie explains a lot of what America soldiers faced during the time. Well worth the visit

Presenting history and making it interesting is always a challenge. This important, historical site is thoughtfully put together. You can literally walk through time as sections of the fort reflect what it looked like at different points in history. This made it much more interesting. Well worth the visit.

Not a big history buff but did enjoy this small fort and the film about it's service. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the walk around the grounds.

This was one of the first stops on our "Charleston on the Cheap" weekend. At $5 for the family this is a deal. Start at the visitor center across from the fort. The film they have is one of the best I have seen from the park service. The tour of the fort is self guided. They could use a... More

My daughter got married on Sullivan's island, and with many family around I sent them all across the street to the fort. Weather was perfect, and everyone had a great time exploring. The park service staff were very accommodating and spent the time to explain all to my group, who were all visiting from England. Well worth a visit.

I love history and Fort Moultrie is a great place to get plenty. You can start your exploration in the visitor's center with a 22 minute video explaining the history of this military compound. Then you can explore the actual fort at your liesure. We were promised a guided tour on the telephone, but federal budget cuts have left this... More

Nicely restored with a very nice visitor center just across the road. Very reasonable entry fee and nice grounds and parking areas.
