  • Open to public only once a month, with guided tours available. It has been around for almost 120 years with lots of history. Personally, I was more interested in its architecture and the garden. Great place to spend a few hours!
  • Just managed a "walk-by," but beautiful architecture.
  • National treasure with beautifully preserved building
