“Clean but not many interesting thing to see”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

it's clean, but nothing interesting and very hot. You only need to donate as much as you like before entering.

“Fun”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I like to spend an evening in this place, it is fun to enjoy the public space and the yard inside especially when we're up to the wall and wait for sunset

“Overrated tourist spot”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Much to my surprise, the fort was not as I expected. The place really needs to be properly maintained and governed.

Do note that there are NO Entrance fee. The guard will basically ask for a donation. Whether its for the fort or himself, only he knows.

Has two museums which was basically the highlight of the experience. Tickets are around 10,000 perhead for foreigners and 5,000 for locals.

Rubbish basically his everywhere, as the locals do not appreciate how amazing this place could be.

Overall a sad experience for me as a fan of all things old.

“One of the preserve historical building in Makassar”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Makassar left very view historical site as the citizen and government didn't manage it well. So for people who like history and culture, should come here. Yes there is a donation when you fill in the guestbook, you can pay for only Rp. 5000 or more if you want. Inside if you want to entrance the museum then there will be another entrance fee and you get the booklet of what inside.
Come in the morning if you want to take the shot of bright sky or in sunset time for the ambience.
