Go on line and read the history b/4 you go. It is never closed except for the small visitors museum. Walk the battlefield, take in the view and remember the patriots who died there defending liberty and freedom from an oppressive ruler. One plus hours are suffient. Then head north to the Nautilus Museum at the Sub Base. Well worth the short (31/2mile) ride.
