Overview
More
Fort Pulaski National Monument has one of the best preserved nineteenth century masonry fortifications in the United States. It was also the site of a major artillery duel during the Civil War that saw the first major use of rifled artillery in battle. You can tour the fortress, see living historians bringing the past to life, or watch an artillery demonstration that really immerses visitors with the sights and sounds of conflict. The monument however, is more than just a fort. We have over 5000 acres of pristine saltwater marsh, one of the largest concentrations of marsh along the coast of Georgia. Combine that with miles of trails and you have a great way to get away from our cultural history and surround yourself with the natural beauty of Cockspur Island, the heart of the monument.

Made a trip from Hilton Head Island to visit Tybee Island - quite surprised by Ft Pulaski and the museum. Came upon this by accident. Lots of local history - no charge.

A well restored and preserved piece of American history. The rangers are helpful and very informative. Ask a lot of questions....you will get some really good answers! The price can not be beat!

Going to and from Tybee Island, your travels takes you right by the entrance to Fort Pulaski National Monument. Don't drive by! Stop and spend a little time walking though this little bit of important history. It is well worth your time!

I'm not usually a visitor to older museums, etc., thinking if you've seen one you've seen them all. This was not the case. The area is well maintained, good walking areas with many benches along the way. It gives a whole different perspective and appreciation...More
