  • 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.
