Fort Point National Historic Site Tours

star-4.5
100 reviews
Fort Point National Historic Site
Sitting just below the massive Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point is a National Historic Site that once served to defend the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The brick fort can still be explored on foot today, with the opportunity to learn about the area’s history and the fort’s former military use. 

The fort was in operation from the Gold Rush era through World War II, a fascinating time in San Francisco’s history. A visit to the site offers extraordinary, close-up views of San Francisco’s most famous landmark — the Golden Gate Bridge. It is one of only three third-system brick forts on the west coast of the United States. Due to its location and protection of the coastline, it is also known as the “Gibraltar of the West.”

Visitors have the chance to explore Civil War era uniforms, weaponry, and historic photographs on display. With its many floors and wide brick arches, it stands as an excellent example of American military architecture.

Practical Info

Fort Point is open Friday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, and is closed Monday to Thursday. It is located at the end of Marine Drive on the Presidio of San Francisco. To get there by public transportation, take Muni bus 28 or the PresidiGo bus and get off at the bridge toll plaza stop. Limited parking is available. Tours and cannon drills are offered when open. Admission is free.
