MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Starting next year, visitors will have to pay admission to Fort Conde.

The tourist attraction, operated by Activation Management, will continue to be free until sometime in 2017.

Manager Scott Tindle tells WKRG-TV (https://bit.ly/2g5Kr97 ) it’s an exciting opportunity for the fort, which will be changed quarterly to reflect its diverse heritage. He says admission charges will begin once changes to Fort Conde are implemented. Tindle says the new additions to the museum will include technology and live action characters appropriate for the fort.

He estimates admission prices around $7 for adults and $5 for children.

Admission to the fort recalls an earlier time. Longtime volunteer Ronald Hunt said the city charged admission from 1976 to 1983. It has been free to get into the fort for more than 30 years.
