Never got to go in as it was closed when we were there, but the view of the ocean is great. The history that once could take in here is amazing. Go check this out.

This was a nice piece of history to visit. The staff are very good and equip you with headphones and you get a history briefing throughtout your walk. It is a fully maintained site with a wonderful view as well.

We liked the place. It has historical information. This is an old building with very low height arches to cross. If you have problem with knee or back please do not attempt to cross these arches.

The grounds around the Fort were well cared for and the Fort it's self was lovely to photograph against the blue sky and green lawns. It wasn't busy and just a few dollars were needed to enter inside to have a look around.

We visited this as part of a city tour . Beautifully kept old fortress. I Loved that they had the “Walkman” with head phones in your language to listen to as you go through the building. It was a bit glitchy but generally worked great....More

There is a small fee (a few dollars). Some parking...kids might like it. Doesn't take long to see it (half hour to an hour, tops). Avoid hottest part of the day if possible. Bring water.
