So glad we decided to visit! The museum is free and much bigger then expected. Lots of history but also lots of reading. They would benefit from an audio option. Decided to take the walking tour of the different points of interest on the map but found out afterwards that we could have driven to see them all. Great little... 更多
Fort Monroe is nice and peaceful; nice to walk around, nice to drive through, nice to have a picnic. The casemate museum was informative and educational. Lots of history, plenty to read, some videos, displays, etc. Job well done. The layout inside/through the old casemate itself added to the experience - watch your head, as the ceilings are low in... 更多
I have been here many times and it is just a fantastic place. If you want to experience what a Civil War era fort is like, this is the place to see. It is an education.
Shows the entire history of the fort with interesting displays and detailed history. Caution: I am 6 foot and had to duck quite a bit through most of the front part of the museum. It was an 1.5 hour well spent before walking outside. Gift store had some interesting items, don't pass it up at the end of the exhibits.
Great museum covers all the history in the place it happened. Offers a video and approximately 12 rooms of historical displays and artifacts.
The casemate museum is one of the most realistic iconic museums ever visited, it is focused and with a little imagination it presents the stage to a truly understanding what life for those who inhabited Ft Monroe must have been like, well done, well laid out, and very well presented

The mote is so interesting (and pretty) to see, including the view from above. We all enjoy history; however, I think even people who are not totally into it... 更多
The history inside the museum was fascinating. It really takes you back in time. Seeing where prisoners were kept and the artifacts that were on display made it a great history lesson.
