While in Hampton with several free hours I headed to Fort Monroe with what I though were good directions - not so. After circling around a time or two - was worth seeing the setup of the entire fort complex (and glad I did) but where was the Casemate Museum? Almost ready to give up, I saw a Hampton police...

Fort Monroe is a great place to just drive through and enjoy the history. The Casemate Museum is very unique...in a bunker. It is all very authenic, very little modernatizion of the fort before it became a National Park. There is no charge for the fort or to museum

Explore the casemate and Fort and feel as though you have stepped back in time. This is a site truly worth saving, don't let the surrounding grounds be trashed with progress!

The Casemate has been around for eons, well before Ft Monroe became a National Park. It can look a little outdated but it has some unique displays and is in the rebout of the fort. Make sure to walk around the moat, check out the pet cemetery of previous inhabitants of the fort, Army families. Fort Monroe is in a... More

Fort Monroe is the real deal! The casemate museum tells the story of the Fort, the civil war, and the importance of this military monument. If in the area, it is a must see. Definitely worth half a day to explore the museum and the Fort. Then stop in downtown Phoebus for lunch or dinner to make your day trip... More

I have been an avid reader of Edgar Allen Poe since I was quite young. Shortly after arriving in the Tidewater area in 1971 I visited Fort Monroe initially because I knew Poe had served there. That part was a wonderful addition to my Poe experiences but I soon discovered there was so much more of interest there. You don't... More

I am not much of a history buff but I learned quite a bit while visiting the Casemate Museum.My husband had always wanted to visit as he is retired Army so while in Virginia Beach for Thanksgiving weekend, we took advantage of our time and planned a visit. The walk around historical Fort Monroe was very interesting. I loved looking... More

Wonderful museum that is tucked away in a corner inside the fort. Very educational and well worth the visit. Don't forget to walk around the fort afterwards.

I have been to Fort Monroe a couple of times and am fascinated with the entire casemate with the moat, cool bridges going into the fort and the homes and building within. The casemate museum tells the story well with many artifacts and information about the civil war and the entire fort. You can stand in the room that held... More
