  • This is a hidden treasure. It is small, but it has much. And you get to take a boat. Oh, it is a living history museum that has 'living history'.  more »

  • 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 well preserved. Bill did a great job with overview. Note: lots of walking from dock along pier. 2.5 football fields in length
  • My Great-Great Grandfather was a Confederate prison held at Fort Delaware. Captured at the Battle of Wayneboro he was held from March 1864 until June 1864. 51st Virginia Infantry. It was eerie walking the place that he was held at 153 years ago.
  • Loved it. Wish I had planned more time to explore all. Great friendly and knowledgeable staff. Free parking, good restaurants close.
  • Awesome place to visit for the day. Staff and interpreters were amazing.
