Effective October 1st, 2014 Fort Pulaski has updated its Academic Fee Waiver process.
If you tour Fort Pulaski National Monument with a Commercial Tour Guide you do not qualify for an Academic Fee Waiver.
For the National Park Service Guidelines on Academic Fee Waivers and a fillable fee waiver form click here.
Field trips to Fort Pulaski are free when you complete an Academic Fee Waiver form. When you bring your students to Fort Pulaski, you will:
1) Learn about one of Savannah's most interesting historic sites.
2) Help meet specific Common Core and Georgia Performance Standards.
3) Have fun.
You can schedule a ranger-guided field trip or a self-guided field trip.
Reservations Reservations are required for all school group visits, and are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are made with the submission of a fee waiver request form. Approval of the fee waiver will also qualify the group for a free visit to the monument. You can plan either a ranger-guided field trip or a self-guided field trip.
Food There is a picnic area, with covered tables and rest rooms, in the park. The picnic area is a three- or four-minute drive from the Fort parking lot (or about a 3/4-mile walk from the parking lot). In order to maintain the historic character of the Fort, picnicking is not allowed inside the Fort. There are no restaurtant facilities in the monument.
Safety The fort is two stories. There are no railings on the upper level. Small children need to be very closely supervised on the upper level of the fort. While much of the fort is under cover, walking from place to place will take your group outside. And even when you are under cover, there is no climate control. So plan on being outdoors. Insects are common at any time of year, depending on the temperature.
Accessibility The first level of the fort (including restrooms) is accessible to wheelchairs, but the top level of the fort is not accessible to wheelchairs. The visitor center and its exhibits are wheelchair-accessible. The picnic area is wheelchair-accessible.
