  • Very interesting and the staff is very knowledgeable
  • Staff was great and gave a tour explaining the history of the building. Must see for history buffs.
  • If you like history, this is perfect, nice little gift shop and the staff is super helpful. If you go on a bulldog tour, admission is free. If you want to be wntertained, don't go. If you like to read and study history, it's a must stop.
  • Don't waste your time. This is goofy and hokey.
  • $5 per person, $10 per group. Interesting building but not a lot to see.
