Costumed interpreters will present the history of Pensacola during the Civil War at different stations inside Fort Barrancas. Small groups will depart the visitor center every 15 minutes for the hour-long tour. Visitors should arrive about 15 minutes before their assigned tour time.
Although, the fort will be lit with candles, visitors may bring a flashlight. The entrance to the fort includes a steep 90-yard walkway and visitors must use narrow staircases to access different fort levels. Parking is limited so car-pooling is recommended.
Visitors should enter the Naval Air Station through the back gate on Blue Angel Parkway. Dress appropriately for winter weather. Superintendent Brown encourages everyone to enjoy the National Seashore and join us for our ranger-led programs.
