  • A beautiful building. It has free entry and once inside the amazing brick work continues. It has lost of information on the building and on the surrounding area and it's history.
  • A good place to be with family. But windy be prepared for that.
  • I've walked past a couple of times and admired the building from the outside but never ventured in. A lovely building inside with a good video presentation on the Bay Area played every 20 minutes.
  • Lovely building and informative info on its history. Important these places are preserved for future generations
  • One of the best looking buildings anywhere.
