A facinating trip into war history well worth the park entry fee

We visited Fort Pulaski during a camping trip to Savannah in September 2016. We had just come from Fort McAllister where a small museum costs $9 for an adult. We were partly there to check out the campground for a future trip, but decided not to go into the museum. Fort Pulaski was a very different experience. It is a... More

We visited when on a trip to Savannah, it's only c15 miles out of town and easy to find on Hwy 80. We were fortunate as they were demonstrating the cannons similar to those used in the civil war. Very good visitor centre with a 15 minute film explaining the history worth seeing this before visiting the fort. Allow plenty... More

I have been to the fort on several occasions and love bringing my dog. It's a great time with a friend or just by yourself. The fort is rich with history and the staff are always friendly and knowledgeable!

This is a part of history that explains why we have a holiday for General Pulaski. This fort is so full of the old history of the south, and the introduction of the new canons from the north. We are a nation of people with great heritage and the willing ness to do what ever we can to keep all... More

The guide tour was well worth the wait. Very knowledgeable staff. Great place to spend 1/2 a day and wonder around.

Tons of exhibits, budget at least two hours, e.g. 0.5 hour visit center, 0.5 hour guided tour, 1 hour walking around. We attended a tour about flag signaling during war-time, very interesting, it is about basic encryption and decryption. There are a couple of easy/level walking trails near the fort.

Great scene of a civil war battle. The walls are fractured from the union canon onslaught, and there are canan balls still embedded in them! The two tours I experienced (one a decade ago, one just now) were totally different in focus, but both were interesting and informative. Today's park ranger did not mention the main entry defences and other... More
