“A nice visit”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

There is not that much to see and the kids were not allowed to explore on their own. You have a guided tour which lasts about 1 hour. It is interesting but not great for children. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

“Super place to visit!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

My family really enjoyed this site. Our tour guide was so great with my son and allowed him to touch and experience many of the canons, guns and old store items. In my opinion this was one of the "must sees" of my big tour of New England.
