You can tour this fort and learn about the history of it and see some of the fortifications and cannons that were used to defend this fort from invaders.

A tour through the old fort guarding the harbor. A reenactment of a canon firing into the harbor is every day 11;30. Good tour. Buy the tickets at the guard house at the entrance. Seniors get a discount.

I believe it opens at 9:00am. The entrance closes at 4:00pm, but you can stay inside until 5:00pm.
