Beginning Monday August 25, the infantry barracks museum will be closed for remodeling and to prepare for a new theater and exhibits. Work is expected to be completed by spring of 2015. The site's movie will be played in the visitor center upon request.
While it is possible to ride bicycles to the site, the site is open to foot traffic only, so visitors riding bicycles to the site should plan on parking and locking them at the front of the site during their visit.
