I arranged for a private candlelight tour for my staff. We went to Fort Mifflin on a misty Sunday night and out tour was guided by Michael Carver. He was an excellent guide and everyone had a really good time. Not only did we get the history of the Fort but any paranormal or interesting stories that were documented via police ledgers were also explained to us. Many of us took pictures and we had fun in the days after realizing we caught some pretty cool orbs across all different phones in all different places. It was the perfect spooky time without any artificial scares. For those who were really interested in the history, they were intrigued to visit in the daytime so that they could see all the the buildings in the daylight. Highly recommend for a large group!

I love the paranormal, and older things to see in cities. Especially if they are renown to have some haunting etc. Even if im a sceptic and never had a experience of the paranormal myself, i absolutely enjoy going to visit places that might have had those experiences in the past. For the price it is definitely worth stopping here and having a look. Beth was great in giving me some background and also showing me pictures of some of the oddities caught on camera. The grounds are well kept and you are able to just visit at your paces, my favourite was the above ground cave.

We visited here expecting to learn something about the history of the fort. Unfortunately, even though we were charged admission, none of the exhibit buildings were open. We were able to walk around the interior of the fort, but found the experience to be less than mediocre. No reason to return unless something changes about the presentation philosophy.

We came here for a ghost tour and it was more of a history tour and less of a ghost tour. Very intriguing history and the tour guide was very knowledgeable, so I give it 5 stars for the historical aspect, but it was not very good in terms of what you expect from a ghost tour. Nonetheless, I do plan to go back during daylight hours to tour the grounds again and take in more than what I learned during the ghost tour.

So I re-enact and as part of the hobby this place I tend to visit most. The grounds are clean, the black smiths shop is run down and needs repairs but other than that the buildings are in good condition. Although the fort is more associated with the revolutionary war it has been used time again during other wars, such as the civil war and the world wars. Admission is fairly reasonable however the fort relies upon the cost of admission to maintain upkeep and preservation projects.

We have flown over this attraction about 100 times and never knew it was there. It is on the approach adjacent to the Philadelphia International Airport. It is a smaller fort, but a very important one during the Revolutionary War. It could use a little more investment from the park system. I think the weekends when reenactments occur would have been a better time to visit. Gift shop open only on the weekends. Docents not available today either.

On a full week’s vacation for the Wawa Welcome America Festival in Philadelphia, we paused for lunch one day at the Wendy’s on nearby Island Avenue en route to Fort Mifflin on the sponsored free admission.

In honor of the Wawa Welcome America Festival, the fort had a lot of special activities mostly for the youngsters.

Over by the original Infirmary, there were several cannon on display.

Entering the inside of the fort, we met a re-enactor who gave us some of the fort’s history. Since Independence Day was coming July 4th, the focus of the talk and activities centered on the American Revolutionary War period.

We learned that Fort Mifflin was one of the only intact Revolutionary War battlefields and the only fort in Philadelphia. After General Howe took Philadelphia, the British were surrounded on three sides. Only from the south could Howe get food and supplies for his troops. British ships were ordered up the Delaware River. At Fort Mifflin on November 15th, 1777, they met resistance from the 400 troops manning the fort. A massive bombardment of the fort ensued. The Patriots wound up abandoning the fort and retreating to Fort Mercer across the river. They set fire to Fort Mifflin as the last men left.

Inside the main building, we found a Ben Franklin re-enactor demonstrating how he conducted his experiment with lightning to produce electricity.

A woman in period dress discussed the use of herbs in Colonial times. She demonstrated how to make a lavender sachet to freshen clothes being stored. She also discussed the relaxing properties of the lavender scent. Several of us made small sachets. I’m using mine in my weekender suitcase.

Nearby, another woman in period dress demonstrated wooden toys of the day.

Items from the Revolutionary period on display included clothing, uniforms, replicas of coins, weapons, and tools as well as food, such as dried fish and baked goods

We toured the model Infirmary. The advances in medicine over the centuries was obvious.

Outside, youngsters were being schooled on soldiering skills with wooden rifles.

Nearby, there were re-enactor soldiers on horses. They were very popular with adults and youngsters alike.

There was an area where one could climb up to get a commanding view of the river.

Meanwhile, flights were taking off and landing at Philadelphia International Airport which was very close by. That kind of spoiled the step back in time to the Revolutionary War era.

We also visited the gift shop.

We were there for well over two hours.

We rate Fort Mifflin at 4.25 and highly recommend a visit.

I came here yesterday with my cousin. This was on her bucket list to go to. We were fortunate it was not crowded here due to a cloudy and cool day. Practically had the whole fort to ourselves. We were given a map and away we went to do our touring. The first place we entered was the arsenal which was dark and dimly lit. My cousin got spooked which was funny for she is never afraid of anything. We used our map and went into many buildings that were open.

One of the employees named Matt actually came over to us and offered to show us around and gave us tons of information about the fort and the important role it had during the American Revolution. He took us into many of the buildings that looked like they were closed and explained what was in them and a lot of history of each item we saw.

He also gave us the background of the Fort Mifflin flag was very interesting. All the facts and information he told us was very valuable and made our day trip here fantastic. We hope to come back again and bring our husbands.

We went for "Siege Weekend", the anniversary of the Americans defending the fort during the Revolutionary War. There were two short reenactments during the day and you could visit all the buildings and grounds in between. They had a food truck there for lunch.
If you're looking to spend more than an hour or so at the fort then plan on going during an event if possible.

minor grievances:
-The gift shop was a bit lacking; not just in size but what they sell.
-IMO the two reenactments were spaced out too far in time. To catch both of them you had a lot of time to kill in between (first one at 11am and the second at 3pm).

We were at Fort Mifflin for a friend's outdoor wedding. The history of the place is well worth learning about, and the staff was very helpful in making sure we knew what was what. There are 6-ft thick walls, parapets and even some cannon that apparently can be shot for special occasions. Lots of stuff worth seeing and good information offered. Out a bit from the city but really worth a trip, especially if you have any interest in American history.
