Fort Monroe National Monument is open year-round for outdoor activities like walking and exploring the grounds from dawn to dusk. Many of the buildings are currently occupied, when exploring the grounds please respect the resident's privacy by not peering into windows or opening gates. A full schedule of programming will take a few years to develop and will be influenced by the public planning process, but continue to look for limited programming available as we continue to expand our operations. Most of the public programming and facilities are currently operated through our partners.
