Help support Washington State Parks, purchase a Discover Pass. Passes are available at (click on the names for a Google Map) the Friends of Fort Worden Gift Shop (in their new location), the Coast Artillery Museum at Fort Worden, the Marine Science Center at Fort Worden, the Registration Desk in the Commons, and some other Fort Worden Partners for $30 without any additional charges so you save $5. Because the Partners sell the Pass at cost without any markup, some only take cash or checks. The Coast Artillery Museum, the Gift Shop and the Registration Desk in the Commons can accept credit cards.

Visit for information about accommodations and events at the Fort.

Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day the Harbor Entrance Control Post will be open for tours on Saturdays from 11 AM to 3 PM, and there is a free, guided Walking Tour of Artillery Hill beginning at 1 PM on Saturdays, starting in the grassy field near Battery Randol. The walking tour covers 1-1.5 miles and can last up to 2 hours if people are interested, but you're welcome to join up or leave at any time. A flashlight is advised, but not required. Donations are always appreciated, we have a box at the HECP when it's open, and always at the Museum. Occasional extra days are scheduled, please see our Upcoming Events page for details.

The tours are also available for groups at any time by special arrangement, please call the Museum at (360) 385-0373 to discuss it. For those unable to walk to the top of the hill, you can check in at the Park office and present a Washington State disabled parking pass or equivalent to make arrangements to drive to the top of the hill. You will still need to be able to navigate uneven ground and some stairs to make the tour itself.

Tours are subject to the availability of volunteers. If you're interested in helping with tours please contact the museum.
