About this event

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.

All visits begin at the Visitor & Education Center, 30 Ingalls Road, Fort Monroe, VA. Come early to explore the exhibits and take in the view from the rooftop terrace, but please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled reservation time. Staff at the VEC will check you in, orient you to Fort Monroe, give you your ticket and direct you to the Casemate Museum entrance.

The Visitor & Education Center is open 9:30am to 4:30pm. The Casemate Museum is open from 10:00am to 4:00pm, with last timed entry at 3:30pm. Both the Visitor & Education Center and the Casemate Museum are free of charge. There is ample parking in front of and behind the Visitor & Education Center. Accessible parking and entrances are behind the building.
