    Lots of fun for history buffs and great photo op's. We would have like to seen more folks dressed in period clothing, and more interaction from those who were there. We encountered just six guys dressed in period clothing, and for the most part there was very little interaction from them with the visitors. We found a group of them holed up, sitting together in the tunnel leading in and out of the fort. Kind of felt "cliquish" and almost uncomfortable to approach them for pictures with the kids.

    The fort itself is as impressive as any other early 19th century but that is not a problem if you have never seen one. The location of this one id the kicker. Plus its role on the war of 1812 and the battle of Mobile. Visit the place when the winds are not too strong and it does not rain. It is not warm out there in the bay

    Well preserved fort walls and tunnels. Our family enjoyed this but note that all there is left at the site is walls and doorways and tunnels. There isn't any "stuff" in the the fort. We had a good time climbing around and seeing the smart design.

    Now that we've seen it, I dont' know that we'd go again but it was definitely worth going!

We found a group of them holed up, sitting together in the tunnel leading in and out of the fort. Kind of felt "cliquish" and almost uncomfortable to approach them for pictures with the kids. Also, the museum might want to consider selling cold drinks and snacks. Once you are in, there is no where to get a drink or a snack for the kids, so be sure to bring your own. Overall an OK time.
