Beautiful! The small museum was a nice visit with the kids. Just enough information to learn something without them feeling overwhelmed... the beach is gorgeous and we had a great visit.
We went back again and took our school age kids they had a phenomenal time and soaked up all the history... it was a great adventure!

I did not expect much, as I've been to other forts from the time period. I highly recommend Fort Macon! The layout is logical, the information well organized and helpful, and the fort is maintained in better condition than many others. For those interested in military history and fort design, this is a good visit.
If you have small children, there are plenty of places to run around, and the beach is easy walking distance for a great picnic/lunch.

LOVE IT. For Macon is a great source of history in North Carolina. The Fort has an excellent museum that talks all about it's history, and then has the entire fort for you to roam around.

My family traditionally visits the fort each year. This has become a staple of the family calendar started by my grandparents and we are now introducing the fourth generation of the family. This is definitely worth stopping by if you are interested in history. Honestly, it isn't "glamorous", but the organization that runs it has been adding things bit by bit as the years have progressed.
