Fort Pulaski National Monument has one of the best preserved nineteenth century masonry fortifications in the United States. It was also the site of a major artillery duel during the Civil War that saw the first major use of rifled artillery in battle. You can tour the fortress, see living historians bringing the past to life, or watch an artillery demonstration that really immerses visitors with the sights and sounds of conflict. The monument however, is more than just a fort. We have over 5000 acres of pristine saltwater marsh, one of the largest concentrations of marsh along the coast of Georgia. Combine that with miles of trails and you have a great way to get away from our cultural history and surround yourself with the natural beauty of Cockspur Island, the heart of the monument.

We really liked touring this old fort. It was so well designed and built. You will not believe the ventilation designed in to keep you cool inside. It is also a lesson in the futility of forts and should have been taken to heart by...More

This was one of the best guided tours that I have ever taken. The Park Ranger was well spoken and informative. He knew Civil War History well above the Forts history. Sure, wish I remembered his name but this was at 3PM Aug. 17, 2017.

We had not been to the Fort and enjoyed hearing about its history and seeing the preserved equipment that included quarters and cannons in addition to the Fort itself. Most enjoyable is listening to the staff tell stories of the battles and the techniques used...More

Fort Pulaski is located half way between Savannah and Tybee Island off of highway 80. If your doing the speed limit, you could easily miss it. It's a National Monument,so there is a fee to enter. It was an important Fort during the Civil War...More

Superbly maintained, easily visited. Signage could be improved. Rather than just identifying locations, history and relevance should be presented. Weapons throughout the fort have no signage describing details about the pieces and their use. Relatively small National Park but certainly one worth maintaining. Demonstration of...More

The fort is closed until further notice due to Hurricane Matthew damage.
