  • people were nice and ready to tell you the story, it was really cool to see if you like history I'd go again  more »
  • There are few forts like this left. This one is much easer to get to than Fort Sumter or Fort Jefferson.  more »

  • This is a pretty all right museum. Being inside the fort walls is really cool, and the exhibits are informative. Some letters by Poe showed some unexpected aspects of his personality. The down side of the museum is that there is nothing interactive, and not much to appeal to the little ones.
  • Fort Monroe is special and historic and located at the mouth of the James River and Chesapeake Bay. The Casemate museum is inside the fort's moat. The area recently became a national park after a long history as a military base. Alot of money will be needed to restore the area to its former glory.
  • I was here in the 1950s as a military dependent and spent a number of happy Sunday evenings at the buffet of the Fort Monroe Club inside the casemate. I was pleased to see what a wonderful job of preservation they have done with the place. Thanks.
  • Some of the people who work there are RACIST! If you are African-American or a person of color DO NOT go there! I visited for the first time the other day and when I got to the end of exhibits, I visited the gift store and a white woman who worked there, followed me all around the store the whole time I was in there and watched me without saying a word. I am very affluent and its not like anything in the store was worth a bag of beans anyway! I was dressed nice coming from church with my jacket on and she still profiled me and made me feel uncomfortable. She didn't say not one word to me while I was in there, she just followed and targeted me. There was also an older white couple in the store at the same time I was in there, and she didn't even bother them at all, she was just focused on me. I had even donated money to support museum without even a thank you or acknowledgement from the security worker or other staff that was around. Unfortunately, they are so ignorant they still believe blacks are slaves as the setting of the past emanates there. They still like many idiots in the Hampton Roads and Virginia Beach areas and in our horrible nation, think blacks are dumb, broke, ignorant, and stupid; though my pocket book and credentials tells me different. Blacks BOYCOTT this place! What a shame!
  • I'm Jeff with Virginia Paranormal Investigations. As part of a paranormal team, I've had the opportunity to research a lot of history behind some of the areas ghost stories. Without the history, we wouldn't have the hauntings. The case mate provides an awesome glimpse into the past and some of our nations historical figures who contributed greatly to our nation. I would definitely recommend this museum for anyone conducting historical research on this area or anyone who would like an interesting history lesson.
