Fort Monroe Casemate Museum is located inside Fort Monroe. This fort played a big role in history, especially the history of the Civil War. This is a must see attraction when you are in the Hampton Roads area.

Interesting place as you can walk around almost anywhere you like. It's very open, quiet, scenic and peaceful. Obviously, there is some great history here, and what makes it bizarre is many of the places are inhabited. So it's like history still in use. There...More

We were walking the grounds of the fort and found this museum in the far corner. I am unsure if we were just not paying attention, but we had no idea this was here on the property. Either way, this was a fabulous find. The...More
