It was very nice to know a little of the history of the RN.

They could leave open to the public a part while restoring another part.
Unfortunately the place was closed but there was no information about it. Only a sign said that it would open in December 2018. Also our driver told us to be careful as there are hobos around. It is a nice place, but we were very disappointed as it took us two extra rides to get there and then the gates were closed.
It’s a nice historical place to visit. The panoramic view is amazing.
