Fort Monroe National Monument is a new national park unit that will be open year-round for outdoor activities like walking and exploring the grounds. A full schedule of programming will take a few years and will be influenced by the public planning process, but look for limited programming to happen after several months. Most programming and facilities are currently operated through our partners.
