10/22/2019 - Although there were plenty of other people in the area – it looks like there is a school nearby – I was the only visitor to the fort itself. A couple museum workers were doing their thing but paid me no mind. I could not find the gift shop, and when I exited the displays, the workers were out of sight. It is worth your time to drop in on the Marine Mammal Care Center, though here too I saw no staff to visit – and the door to the office was locked. Such was also the case with the Oiled Bird Care & Education Center, which I would have loved to have visited were it open. Also check out the Korean Friendship Bell close by!
