Such a small place for a big price....so I decided to stay outside. Nowadays, everything is about money. If they had free entrance with other services it would work much better.

Stopped off the tourist boat for visit. An hour is a bit too long. Glad we had our packed lunch with us. Make sure you visit all the inside and read the info boards.

Small place compared to the free batteries all over the place nearby .. infact it's tiny and although decent exhibits it doesn't warrant the entrance fee

It is a lovely boat trip out to the fort and then you can wander. I enjoyed it and also liked watching the activities in the habour. But if you are pushed for time I would leave this out.

Took the tourist boat out from the port and took advantage of the free talk and tour around the fort. It provides a great insight into how things used to be and great photo opportunities. This is a must visit spot
