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.

Fort Pulaski is a great experience for any history buff. The design of the fort was impressive. On a really hot and humid day, the interior of the fort was cool and we'll ventilated. I was disappointed that the visitor center was closed because of...More

Loved visiting the Fort! Great place to explore history. Very cool areas for taking pictures and taking in the conditions that the soldiers lived under. Will definitely visit again!

Great old fort with wonderful history. Volunteer tour guide Chip was excellent - knowledgeable, friendly, and answered everyone's questions. For those of us that wanted it, he also spent time going into additional background and details. If you would like additional details outside of the...More

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.

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
