  • Visit this Sunday late morning with our 14-year-old son. Very interesting, the advance in wagonnet is very well done and really allows to be attentive to everything we see. Hologram reconstructions are very well done. There is a middle ground between the visit to the forts where there are very few explanations and materials and the memorial

  • We enjoyed this visit on a "small train". Not many people at this time of year so no waiting !!!

  • One of the WORST tours I've even been on. Some half put together mannequins. Poorly mixed sound. Too dark to actually see what we came to see - the fort! The story that they told did nothing to talk about the war, the battle, the fort, the politics of the time... to be honest, I have no clear idea what they were trying to tell us about. There should also be clear warnings that there is no way to get off the train/ride. And that you are trapped in the dark for ~25 min with strangers. Oh and do not bring your children on this tour.
