Fort Morgan


Explore the grounds of historic Fort Morgan! Standing atop the fort with a view of the bay, visitors can see where several naval battles were fought during two wars. The most famous battle occurred during the summer of 1864 when Confederate and Union naval forces fought for control of the bay entrance. During June and July, a living history program is conducted by uniformed tour guides who tell the history of Fort Morgan from its beginning as an active post in 1834 to World War II. June and July tours are given twice a day at 10 a.m. On Tuesday evenings in June and July the Civil War Evening Tour takes visitors back to the Civil War to show how the soldiers lived. The museum is open 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. daily. The Fort is open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily and 8 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays in June and July (weather permitting). Admission is $7 for adults, $5 seniors (65 and older) and students, $4 for children six - 12, and free for active duty, veterans and children under six. They also offer a Family Pass for $18 that includes two adults and two children. Call for group rates or visit
