This attraction is very interesting. We enjoyed the living history tour that tells the story of the officers and enlisted men. The tours are quite specialized so we heard very little about the prisoners. Plan to spend many hours there and take multiple tours if you want to learn all aspects of this fort. Also - they aren't kidding! There... 更多

Friendly staff and informative free tours (guided or self) and exhibits. History tours, cannon, musket blacksmith demos.

Enjoyed our visit to this state park. the nice little ferry ride was enjoyable. We happened to go on a weekend that had reenactments which made the visit even more enjoyable. Even though it was extremely hot that day, I still enjoyed the visit
You have to take a ferry out (you can reserve tickets), which a great was to get a feel for the place and location. The park staff gives a like overview. Character actor tell you about different parts of the fort. Good afternoon or morning trip. Don't go to near closing, give yourself plenty of time.
