  • It was absolutely beautiful trails. There was nothing to see inside which was disappointing so to pay $10 to walk on trails was kind of ridiculous...
  • The greatest historical place where the people and the land is connected. Excellent people and made many memories.I will be visiting a lot. Thanks
  • pretty light as to what they have inside there i was traveling with a retired couple one of which has limited mobility. she did not want to go outside so we stayed inside. not a lot in there.
