We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Fort. It was educational and very interesting. A word of advice though...it was a cloudy day and thankfully I had a waterproof on as its pretty cool inside so go prepared. Worth the money.

Sorry you were cold. On a hot day it is lovely and cool and on a wintery day it feels quite warm.
