Question About Fort Adams

Hi guys,

I am staying in Newport for the week, love it here so far. :) Tomorrow I am planning on visiting Fort Adams for the first time and taking a guided tour. For anyone who's been there before, I just have a question. Do they have any exhibits that involve the firing of guns and/or cannons? I do not do well around loud noises such as these, so I want to be sure that I won't be encountering any gunfire/cannonfire. I know they won't be doing any reenactments tomorrow, but I just want to know if the Fort features anything like this. Please let me know, thanks guys! :)

I used to be a tour guide there, and although things have changed since then, I highly doubt they're doing cannon or gun firings now.

Went to the Fort today, it was awesome. You're right, they don't do any gun demonstrations, except for a daily salute at noon which I didn't see because I got there past 12 PM. Thanks! :)
