Trip Advisor Historical fort with nice water views.
Mar 25, 2015 by: Ann S from Lake Sherwood
We liked what good shape this very historic fort is in. There are beautiful views of the water from the ramparts and huge cannons all around the perimeter. Handicapped accessibility is pretty good. The Rangers are very nice and quite helpful and knowledgeable. The signs are good giving the history of the barracks, ammunition magazines, cannons, people, etc.

Trip Advisor Living History

My homeschoolers and I went to Fort McHenry as part of our study of the War of 1812. We were fortunate to have picked a day that WWII veterans from Arizona were there as part of their honor flight. What a wonderful experience that was for us to unfurl the 30 x 42 foot flag along side the veterans. The video presentation was moving and informative, and the tour of the Fort itself was well worth the trip.

Amazing amount of history in this place. The Rangers were top notch and very friendly. We made sure to get there in the morning to take part in the changing of the colors. The Ranger took his time and explained everything and why we were doing it and exactly how and why they did it in the day. My wife and I helped change the colors with the other 10-15 visitors there that morning. We then enjoyed walking around the grounds which are carefully maintained. The museum was small but nice and clean. Worth a visit!

Trip Advisor Fort McHenry in Baltimore
Mar 25, 2015 by: Ardeneee from Baltimore, Maryland
Fort McHenry is one of the best attractions in Baltimore. It is one of the few 5 star forts still in existence . The view is amazing and the new visitor center is truly inspiring. Definitely one of the must see places in town. You can take a picnic and just relax in the breeze on the grounds or bring the kids' bikes and kites. Or go to one of the drill parades or flag folding. A great place to take families and friends.
