Fort McHenry is a must see. The history of the fort and battles is well presented and amazing to see. After the video, we went to a talk on the flag. The ranger had us all participate by unfolding the replica flag and holding it...More
This was our second visit. They have a new building and a new video, the end is amazing. Lots of interesting displays. We have enjoyed the flag programs and ceremonies. We had a beautiful day for walking the ramparts. Don't miss it.
This is a very interesting place. You should go planning to spend some time outside - its got beautiful views as well as some ugly city views. Some great history - try to go in decent weather and watch the flag lowering. if you like...More
My wife and I spend several hours here on our recent visit to Baltimore and really enjoyed it.
They have a wonder film you don't want to miss - either before walking to the fort or afterward before you leave.
Great history and staff.
Such a great place, not only to learn about history, but just to walk, to ride bikes, to picnic. We're lucky in Baltimore to have so many beautiful green spaces, and Fort McHenry is one of the best of them.
We visited on a cold day in November. Definitely watch the short movie before you go into the Fort. We enjoyed seeing the area and learning the history. If you don’t want to pay the entrance fee, you can still walk on the path by...More
You could either take a cab or the free bus called the Circulator. You would take the Banner Route on the Circulator to go from downtown to Ft. McHenry. It's 3 miles from the Inner Harbor to the Fort, so definitely walkable... More
You could either take a cab or the free bus called the Circulator. You would take the Banner Route on the Circulator to go from downtown to Ft. McHenry. It's 3 miles from the Inner Harbor to the Fort, so definitely walkable if you're up for it. It's not bad as long as the weather's nice. You'd see a few mediocre blocks with a lot of traffic, but you'd also see a lot of charming neighborhoods with different types of rowhouses. It's a good way to get a feel for the southern part of the city. (Oh, but which train are you taking? The Penn Line which drops you off 2 miles north of the harbor, or the Camden Line, which drops you downtown?)
