Folks itching to explore Fort Knox don't have to wait any longer.

Fort Knox is open for the season. While the surrounding grounds have been open to the public, the gates to the fort have been locked the past six months. Spring hours are 9-5 p.m.

The Penobscot Narrows Observatory will open within the month. The Observatory stated on Facebook that the delayed opening is due to a malfunctioning fire suppression system.

Updates will be posted on the Penobscot Narrows Observatory & Fort Knox State Historic Site Facebook page.
