          Can you access the fort outside of the opening times? I'm wondering if we can still see the fort before 10am or after 6pm...are these the hours the museum is open, but access to the ruins is still available? I need to know as it is likely we may be there outside of these times.

          Unfortunately I don´t think so, we were there after 6pm and we had to come back the next morning when it opened at 10am. Sorry!
