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, please respect the resident's privacy by not peering into windows or opening gates. A full schedule of programming will take time to develop and will be influenced by the public planning process. Please continue to look for available programs here at Fort Monroe as we continue to expand our operations. Most of the daily public programs and facilities are currently operated by park partners.
