  • Very nice site, we'll be back. The guided tours are only at 11, 1 am 3 Tuesday through Saturday. Not wanting to wait for 50 more minutes, we decided to come back. We're looking forward to it!
  • Nice for something to do and learn about historical places and times. The verbal information given during the tour is almost better than the visuals. Good for kids too. You do have to make sure they are open before you go. Parking is free and the people are helpful and friendly.
