Our 13 year old son loved this monument. We were able to walk around the monument and even go inside certain areas. View from the top level of the monument was great. Also, your pass is good for 7 days. We would visit again.

This was a great experience shared with granddaughters and family. The fort is well preserved and rather different than other forts I had seen. The cost is $7 per adult.
