Tour, Tour, Tour Historic Fort Hamilton!
Come Explore New York City’s Coastal Defenses
The highlight of the Harbor Defense Museum is the free guided-tours conducted daily by the museum staff. Explore the outer defenses of historic Fort Hamilton and visit the bluff that overlooks the Narrows—the main entrance into New York City. Quality school tours are also available, which includes a lecture and video presentation on how to load and fire a Revolutionary War musket.

Museum tour guide Otto Johnson demonstrates the method of returning the fired and recoiled flank howitzer back to battery for the next shot to an audience of 8th Medical Brigade soldiers. Gravity and ingenious cams make it a simple task to move the huge cannon.
