Kathleen was a wonderful tour guide. My family and I enjoyed the private tour from Kathleen. The day was hot and not a lot of tourists around. We had tickets, might as well go and enjoy the tour.

It's easy to get jaded by the sheer scope of competition vying for your coinage, but if you want to find a place where you can learn as much or little as you want, and all about you are opportunities for the little ones to touch as much or as little as they want, this place is...

The fort is an awesome experience. It was a little warm in the summer, but the breeze from the water was nice. The staff is very knowledgeable, but it may be to much info for the younger kids to care about until they are a little older.

I didn't go in as I prefer to photograph forts from the outside. This one was particularly striking and both my camera and I loved it. See for yourself.

The Fort is a wonderful attraction for old and young alike. Knowledgeable Staff can provide an insight into the history of the Fort and talks are given at intervals during the day.

Excellent as usual. My 3 children age 5,3 and 1 and niece had a blast as well as the 10 adults.The guide provide great educational material. It is very refreshing to have a hands on museum to bring the children too. I highly recommend attending this museum.
