“museum”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I visited this museum in the summer of 2009 and it was in a wonderful spot you could see for miles no wpnder it was used as a fort. I really enjoyed my visit as my great uncle had been a medic there during the war so it had a special meaning for me but even so it would still be worth a visit try to go when the sun is out for the views from the fort.

Have been to the museum a few times in the past and will gladly go back again and again, this is a great insight to local history and beautiful views over the water best to go on a dry calm day.
