  • This is a great stop for hard-core museum goers, especially if you are into military history. It is not toddler friendly (bring a stroller) and doesn't have much for exciting entertainment. Lots of information and facts. Great for education purposes.
  • Gem of a museum with knowledgeable staff and great docents. Check out the Contraband Decision exhibit to learn about an important piece of American history that happened right at Fort Monroe.
  • Historically significantly important to the area and America.. Self guided tour . You will see some cool stuff.
  • A beautiful location even if you're not into Civil War history! I'd wholeheartedly recommend bringing a picnic basket and a blanket when visiting this museum. It's a little hard to find, but it's a really quiet place with great exhibits in the actual museum. The staff is very well informed and really seem to take pride in their museum. Best of all it's free! They're also not in your face about donating, just a little clear box at the end of the museum. There's plenty to see outside as well with little traffic and beautiful architecture all around. The views of the bay are so beautiful. If you want a nice quiet day with the family with a bit of history mixed in, this museum is great.
  • Employees are knowledable and It is the most original and complete fort we have been to.
