They'll fully reopen the fort once renovations within is complete and the Dewan construction is settled. But as far as I'm aware, you can go up there right now, just be weary of falling debris and cranes. The fort will most probably become a centre piece of a massive park in the area, like Fort Canning Park in Singapore.

And I recall once, a brochure I saw in Hong Kong about Kuching, calling this Castle Margherita...

But be glad this one is still being utilised. Many old Brooke-era forts are forgotten, like in Sadok, Limbang and the burnt one in Miri. Betong's Fort Alice is still a functioning centre of government and Fort Lily in Kapit is a museum owned by the Tun Jugah Foundation.
