Went to the Fort to get my National Parks Senior Pass. Stayed for the visual presentation about the flag. Very enjoyable. Short enough to keep children interested. Very nice gift shop. No food on grounds, but lots of spaces to picnic.

The history of the Star Spangled Banner comes alive here. You can feel the history here and importance of this place. If you go to Baltimore you MUST Fort McHenry.

We spent part of the day exploring Fort McHenry with friends. My expectations were exceeded, with excellent interpretive exhibits, people in period dress, a cannon hiring, and a performance by a fife and drum corp. It was a hot day; I would recommend visiting earlier...More

We visited for the third time and it was just as good as the first. It is easier driving as the water taxi can take quite a bit longer. It was hot but they did a demonstration with the large flag outside. The movie and...More

This was a lot more fun than I anticipated. I'm not that much of an American history buff yet this place was lots of fun to check out. The exhibits were brief but informative. Note that if you take the Water Taxi from the Inner...More

There is so much more to learn here than from history books. The opening movie is shown on a screen that opens up to see the flag outside. The people in period costumes giving demonstrations of life 200+ years ago are fascinating. Great display of...More

Purchase a National Parks Pass for $10.00 if you are over 62 years of age. Gets you and up to 4 additional guests (I think) into every National Park for free. Best ten bucks we ever spent!

No, they don't have any scooters, or motorized vehicles. I to have problems getting around. I have taken my power chair there. It gets into most of the places, but it can't get into some parts of the fort.
