It was an amazing experience taking in all the information it was well worth the price of admission if you really delve into the history. Kids probably won't like it a waste of money.

To visit the Fort is $10 per person. However we only visited the Visitor center to see the exhibit and watch the video and the grounds and that is free.

No, they don't have any scooters, or motorized vehicles. I to have problems getting around. I have taken my power chair there. It gets into most of the places, but it can't get into some parts of the fort.
