This historic fort is impressive. Be sure to view the film first and then walk around outside, in and out the various buildings. The flag ceremony near the end of the afternoon is very patriotic and interesting for kids of all ages.

To visit the Fort is $10 per person. However we only visited the Visitor center to see the exhibit and watch the video and the grounds and that is free.
