The museum is interesting for its history of Fort Monroe, along with "visits" from Edgar Allan Poe and Jefferson Davis, but it's fascinating when it talks about slavery. I had no idea that the first slaves landed in the area, nor that the first blanket...More

Incredible Fort for military and history buffs. The Casemate museum give a clear very well done history of the fort. Excellent exhibits with terrific tour guides. The historical points throughout the Fort are amazing. I encourage everyone with a thirst for knowledge to go there.

Very interesting place for history. And the nature around is very beautiful and the sight over the ocean is absolutely wonderful.
