I understand why this is number 2 out of best things to do! Loved it! My husband was here for business so while he was at work I visited here!

Whether you were born here, great...and if not, that's great, too! I encourage one and all to spend a morning (or afternoon) at this most historical location. You won't regret it. Great history happened here...and it's presented in a very nice way!

There is a video to watch and if the curtains in the room work, once the video is over, open up to the flag and it's quite powerful. On several occasions though, it didn't happen and I had built up "a surprise" to my guests....More

We did not stay very long here and we are from the UK so I feel the patriotism was lost on us. I thought it was touching that the flag was half mast and everyone paid their respects

My wife and I love to travel. We love food, escape rooms, and history. Fort McHenry was a great place not only for the inspiration for the Star Spangled Banner, but also for the bravery of the men that manned the fort during its bombardment....More

My family made a day trip to Ft. McHenry with my granddaughter. It was on the July 4 and there a lot of festivities. We all had a great time.

We arrived at Fort McHenry late in the day, and took the last tour scheduled. After a very interesting lecture by a park ranger, we toured the fort. A highlight was the lowering of the large U.S. Flag, assisted by the assembled tour group, and...More

Purchase a National Parks Pass for $10.00 if you are over 62 years of age. Gets you and up to 4 additional guests (I think) into every National Park for free. Best ten bucks we ever spent!

No, they don't have any scooters, or motorized vehicles. I to have problems getting around. I have taken my power chair there. It gets into most of the places, but it can't get into some parts of the fort.
