  • We knew nothing about this fort until the day before we visited it. We had a short time to do something else around Philadelphia, and didn't want to deal with traffic to go back into the city. We foun...  more »
  • Went for a reenactment of the siege. Very cool, local historical spot. Not on the mainstream tourist path. Views of River and City were terrific. Lots to learn! 
  • Very interesting history with this fort, having survived the Revolutionary and Civil wars and used for various purposes for both World Wars. It looks like they are working to keep it maintained and it...  more »

  • This is where I wanted to go for my birthday, so my friends and I booked the Candlelight Tour on 10/28. All 8 of us had a BLAST! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned so much about Ft Mifflin and it's rich history. There was lots of activity, too, which was VERY cool to experience. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone that loves history, ghosts and just learning about what happened there. If you are thinking about going, GO! You will be glad you did!!!
  • Great fort that you can spend as little as an hour or up to two days exploring! Great to go during a reenactment event.
  • Fort Mifflin is an outstandingly beautiful location in Philadelphia. The sweeping views of the river are amazing and it is clear why a fort was built at that location. Combined with the historic factor as the "fort that saved America" it makes for a fabulous visit.
  • A lot of history here! The kids loved the fact that Ghost Hunters were here and found it haunted! We keep our eyes open! Great day trip!
  • I slept in Casemate 11. Go there and learn what that is! I always knew of this location but I took part in a group sleepover and was able to really experience the fort. Looking at how our military used a fort in the 1700-1900's was very educational.
