Though many of the gun emplacements and structures have fallen into disrepair, a tour of the Fort Hancock complex provides an enlightening experience for families and groups of all ages. Many structures remain, including the Sandy Hook Museum (1899) that tells the story of Fort Hancock through exhibits and displays of military memorabilia. The Guardian Park Nike Missile Display and History House, a restored home on Officer's Row, can be toured. A variety of Special Events and Family Programs are available throughout the year.
