This makes for an inexpensive side trip and was interesting to walk through. The views from the top are also nice.

We took the whole family, 3 yrs to 66 yrs, everyone loved it history, war, nature, people watching. Would recommend watching the 20 min movie on the fort instead of taking the guided tour. Especially with kids. Don't do both.

just be warned that this is a historic site and not child proof friendly for very young toddlers. Once you wander the fort you can climb up to the top and there are some steep drops. But it was interesting and entertained the family for a few hours.

Had an eerie haunting feeling while touring the fort but that made it even more exciting. Very interesting and beautiful place.
