  • Very informative. Fun for the whole family. You get to go in the building's and see many things. I'd go back again, would also be a great place for a picnic.
  • We go here every year the first weekend in December for the special night time candle light tour and it seems to get better every year. Get your tickets ahead of time or they are usially sold out if you just 'show up'.
  • The employees were friendly and helpful. I would like to return when all buildings are open.
  • Great place! My kids learned a lot of history here. Definitely worth the trip.
  • Very educational - Great place to go with the kids.
