We went on a Sunday and the gates were open and it was free. Another group went on a different day and paid five per person. It is fun walking around the fort and seeing the sites

I wasn't expecting much, but the tour guide brought the place to life. A lot of history here and some amazing stone work. Definitely worth the visit.

We were not allowed to drive in since the property was apparently under new ownership. However, even though we were allowed to walk in, there was still not much to see since the place is still in transition and the gift shop etc were closed.

I believe it opens at 9:00am. The entrance closes at 4:00pm, but you can stay inside until 5:00pm.
