Casemate Museum at Fort Monroe

Open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 am – 4 pm

The Casemate Museum is located within the walls of the largest masonry fort constructed in the United States. The museum chronicles over 400 years of history of Point Comfort and Fort Monroe where many decisions were made that impact the foundation and future of the United States. Housed inside the original casemates where several of the fort’s large guns remain in place, exhibits and dioramas explain the construction of the fort, what daily life was like through the ages and tell the stories of the many famous, and infamous, people who were here. There is also a Museum Shop inside the museum.  Free access to the Casemate Museum for self-guided tours is by timed ticket.  Tickets can be reserved at the Fort Monroe Visitor and Education Center,  online HERE, or call at 757 690-8181.  Guided tours by reservation are $5 per person
