Really a great visit and amazing views of the harbor and great museum as well with great artifacts, etc. I really encourage both adults and kids to watch the video, worth the wait in my opinion, especially if it's a nice day

I strongly encourage all to visit Fort McHenry and try to time it so you can see, and perhaps even take part in, the flag raising cerimony. Interesting reminder of our history and the birth of our national anthem some 202 years ago. The grounds...More

Visited Baltimore for a quick weekend getaway. Took the water taxi to Fort McHenry. Great place to learn about the war of 1812 and the history of the American Flag🇺🇸

The very informative movie on the British attack on Fort McHenry is a must see. There was also a talk on the American Flag which is another must see. Beautiful place to walk on the water. Take the water taxi out there from the harbor

Start at the Visitors center with 10-minute film then take a self guided tour and explore the birthplace of the American National Anthem. This American coastal fort was especially interesting to me as an Midweterner.

Give this venue the time and place in your heart it so richly deserves. The Star Spangled Banner lyrics are wholly understandable given when you'll see, and F.S. Key's query to us these years later. America almost ceased to exist here, and this place is...More

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.

No, they don't have any scooters, or motorized vehicles. I to have problems getting around. I have taken my power chair there. It gets into most of the places, but it can't get into some parts of the fort.
