Things To Do At The Fort Ward Museum & Historic Sites

Just a few minutes from Cameron Station, Fort Ward is a former Union Army installation(861-1865) that was used to defend Washington DC during the Civil War. The fort is still well preserved with over 90% of its earthen walls still intact. A model of 19th-century military engineering, the fort now provides visitors with an excellent understanding of Civil War-era military and civilian life. Here are things to do at the Fort:
  • Explore the fort and find canons, underground bombproofs that sheltered 500 men and reconstructed quarters of the high-ranking soldiers.
  • Learn how the soldiers and civilians lived and worked in Civil War Washington through exhibits and artifacts in the museum. These will include uniforms, diaries and letters, weapons and military equipment, surgeons’ tools, musical instruments, and photographs. There's also a film providing historical information and a gift shop selling books, postcards, and more.
  • Watch Civil War and Revolutionary War re-enactments and meet and converse with reenactors portraying soldiers and civilians in the Civil War era.
  • Enjoy a picnic and barbecue in the park surrounding the fort. The park also features two shelters, a playground, and a dog exercise area.
Fort Ward Museum & Historic Site is located at 4301 W. Braddock Road. The museum opens Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday, noon to 5 pm. The park is open every day from 9 am to sunset.
