There is not a lot of interactive history to this place on a normal visit. A few signs, but it is mostly explore at your leisure. It is a great view from the fort and the grounds are picnic and walking friendly. The best part is the Observatory at the Narrows Bridge that your ticket also gets you into. It takes an hour or two to see everything at a leisurely pace. Bathrooms and gift shops are onsite and there is a nice town just down the river for lunch.
