Retreat Tower Questions

I took my young sons up to the Retreat Tower this past Tuesday -- it was their first visit.  I've never been inside, but have heard that it is opened to the public now & then.  Does anyone know if there are fixed dates that it's open, or where one can find out when it will be open?  The boys are dying to have a look inside and climb to the top for a view of the area.
