  • Beautiful scenery and very informative. Extremely helpful and kind staff. Very family friendly. The site has been recently renovated and restored. Some parts of the park are still closed off to visitors. But I am excited to come back later in the year. Also extremely reasonably priced.
  • I absolutely loved exploring this old castle! All of the volunteers were so helpful in explaining anything that I was looking to know about the items and the family. It's an amazing view into another world!
