This is on the top 10 list of things to do in Maryland. Tour the fort, watch the movie, walk the grounds. Plenty of places nearby to grab lunch if you didn't have time to pack a picnic.

To visit the Fort is $10 per person. However we only visited the Visitor center to see the exhibit and watch the video and the grounds and that is free.
