“Took several outstanding tours. The history of the building was appreciated and seeing the original staff rooms was an unexpected bonus. The tour guide was excellent. She showed true excitement and knowledge.”


“I spent the afternoon here with my mother and it was not disappointing. If you like museums, this little gem is like a trip back in time. I recommend allowing yourself a good 4 hours to really “see” everything.”
