Mobility Friendly and lots of room for kids to run (on lower level). I called ahead and they brought a motorized scooter out to the parking lot for my mother. The staff was incredibly helpful and accomodating. The history of this fort is long so plan on spending hours, or the day there. There is a cafe and also a restaurant. Its a beautiful drive out of the city and not as crowded as most attractions we visited.
It's an intact fortress with plenty to see, a nice museum and friendly helpful staff .😊
