The fortress itself has a military presence even today, but its history is what makes it interesting. The fort overlooks the harbour but the day that we visited there was an enormous cruise ship in port and it towered over the fort and all one could see from the battlements was this huge ship. The fort itself is interesting to walk around to take in the history of the Nazi occupation of Norway in the more recent history, as well as the more ancient history. I wouldn't bother to visit it again, but OK for the first time.
