“Very well preserved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The National Park Service has done a very nice job preserving and interpreting Ft. McHenry. You should definitely watch the movie; good luck holding back tears at the end!

Very interesting place to visit . It's a place that our nation should be proud of. History was made here. Easy to find.

“Lucked out on a reenactment weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This was a nice surprise on our trip to Baltimore and we were fortunate to have visited on a weekend with lots of activities. Historically, it was very inspiring to visit this site but seeing the canons fired was an added bonus. The Water Taxi ride made this an easy trip from the Inner Harbor.

“Feelings of Patriotism”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We visited on 9/14/13 when the park was holding a Star Spangled celebration. This fort had a lot of informative displays. It was neat to see the place that inspired our national anthem. During the celebration they were doing a live encampment, marching/drum bands, and musket firing. It was inspiring.
