This museum is fascinating, focusing on the Civil War and the history of Hampton and Norfolk, as well as what it was like living in the area prior to the Civil War. The Casemate Museum was also the location where Jefferson Davis was imprisoned following the Civil War.
A small museum that details the history of the fort from its early beginnings, through the civil war, its use as Jefferson Davis's prison for a couple of years, through its use up to and through World War I and II until it was decommissioned in 2011 and turned over to the park service.
The Casemate Museum is free to enter and offers free tours! See the jail built inside the walls of the fort and hear the stories of those held there, incredible American history!

“Who knew Hampton was such a big part of US space missions? This museum explores America’s space program which started in Hampton at the NASA Langley Research Center. You can see Apollo, Mercury and Gemini spacecraft and walk around downtown Hampton for shopping and lots of restaurant options and relax by the Hampton River with a beer at Bull Island brewery.”
