The fort as a museum is very small and doesn't provide much information and places to visit. You get a guided tour in French and a paper with English (and several other languages) translation of the main facts. Again, nothing much to see, but there were descriptions of several interesting episodes of St Malo history. From a museum perspective the entrance fee of €5 is quite high.
But this is not just a fee to enter the museum, but also to give some food to your imagination. Just walking around and seeing the fort, the walls, the drawbridge, the seascapes with other forts and St Malo walls, provides both wonderful views and lots of pictures for a vivid imagination - pictures of ships and sea battles, corsairs, seafarers, and other episodes of the past. The whole dependance on the tide adds to this - the fact that the fort is accessible on foot when the tide is out, and is quite far and formidable when the tide is in - adds to this work of imagination and keeps one astonished each time.
A must if you want to daydream of the seafaring adventures of the past.
