The memorial has a great introductory film before entering the site. Staff was very informative and helpful. A must for all Americans.

On a beautiful sunny day in October we had the pleasure of exploring this National Monument. Highly recommended for all ages. The grounds are enormous. Plenty of interesting walking paths amidst historic buildings and grand landscapes with harbor views. Way more than just a walk in the park.
Delightful piece of history!

I am very glad I stopped by Fort McHenry on a recent visit to Baltimore. The weather was lovely and the site is not only informative, but has some nice areas to walk and explore. To top things off, you can enjoy a lovely view of Baltimore Harbor and learn quite a bit about our history and the story behind the Star Spangled Banner and the War of 1812.

We thought we would just be here for an hour, but we ended up staying almost three. We toured ourselves, wandering in and out of the restored buildings at our own pace. There are videos and photos throughout to explain the various areas of the fort. When looking out onto the harbor, you can almost see the British ships approaching. Very moving. We were disappointed that the Water Taxi did not stop here after October 1. It would have been very impressive to arrive from the water.
A Stop for every American

Words cannot appropriately describe the feeling of walking on these grounds. The sacredness and history are beyond Awe inspiring! The staff there is very helpful, and the history gained is wonderful. A must see for anyone of any age. Our only issue was getting there. After October 1, the water taxis only go as far as Locust Point, and taxis do not like to go to this area. There was a long walk to the bus, but it was not running that am due to the Baltimore Marathon. The walk from the Locust Point water taxi to the Fort is QUITE LONG!
