A Tour of Fort Jefferson at the
Dry Tortugas National Park
The Fort has a self guided Tour that takes you up and
around all three levels. You just follow this
solider. The tour takes less than a hour. It is not
Wheelchair accessible. Just to the right as you walk
in the Fort is a Visitor Center with a short 5 min. movie
about the forts history. Some displays from years gone by.
You will also find a bookstore with odds and ends for sale.
Many of the building on the interior
have been lost due to fire or obsolescent then dismantled. Giving
of the Fort a much more open space then in years past.
As you walk around the first and second levels you pass
archway after archway.
Each in its day
was a resting place for the forts cannons. You will come across
bakery, the forts chapel, and the cell Dr. Mudd was kept.
The view out these openings are a lot better now than those
men in the years
past got to see.
