Took the family to check out the fort on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The museum is fairly new and well worth the trip. There are several short films which tell the history of the area and submarines. The museum is one of the best state parks in CT. The fort itself isn't particularly large but it is well maintained. Some of the rooms within the fort show how the soldiers lived at the time. The walk on the fishing pier was nice too. Plus the kids loved climbing on the large cannons. The gift shop was nicely priced compared to the larger forts in NY. Kids got a musket ball, small canon and some books. We will visit again. Next is fort Griswold across the river.
