I was moved by the film showing the struggle of the battle - beautiful - and people there to experience it.

“Must See”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

So glad that I was able to visit this site on my recent trip to Baltimore. The visitor's center is very informative and is worth the time spent before moving on to the fort. You also may want to join a narrative tour by a ranger. It reconfirmed my pride in my country. Bonus is great view of Baltimore skyline.

“Live History”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is a great site to visit with the kids. They learn a lot and it is very beautiful. We took a lot of pictures for the kids to reflect on for history. If you enjoy historical sites, you do not want to pass this one up.

“Great History”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

A trip to Forth McHenry is a must if you visit Baltimore. Everything is remarkably well preserved and the tour is very informative regarding that era of history. Well worth the time!
