getting to the battle box Museum was a long climb especially for elderly people. once you get to the main office you get a coupon which group you will be with. Guide comes with group and explains everything to you. it was very educational.

This was a great place to visit even though you have to wait for an official tour to go through the site. The official tour does provide some very interesting tidbits and highly recommend it, plus you can only access parts of the park via the tour. Be prepared for a hot day.
