  • The fort is on the Pea Patch Island. You'll need to take a ferry. The cost of the ferry is $12 for adults, parking and entrance to the fort are free. Take with you water, bug spray, sunscreen, maybe some food (you won't be able to buy it there). About once an hour they they have great educational, very interesting programs. Overall it is a great experience! I would definitely recommend to visit the fort!
  • Very interesting place if you like history and weaponry. The building itself tells a lot about the American civil war and also about the first and second world wars. The staff is helpful and knows lots of historical details. They show in depth how each weapon works and what was their role in war. The ferry is also really quick and it is really easy to park around the pier.
  • A fun experience that's close to Philly. Kind of expensive.
  • Great little trip over to Pea Patch Island and the fort. Ghost tours are awesome.
  • Very interesting to got to, I enjoyed it a lot!
