  • Very interesting place, learned a lot of new things and the veiws inside are breath taking. Very worth it considering its free.
  • Free admission, donate a few bucks. Beautiful architecture, the shrine is downright breathtaking. Fun if somewhat dusty exhibits.
  • Remembering our past is how we can help improve our future. Beautiful place full of historic items. It is so big you could spend the entire day just looking at all the exhibits! No room to be bored..great for the whole family!
  • Important landmark in the city, go if you can and learn a bit about our history. Beautiful building, worth the visit for sure.
  • This is a lovely place to take a walk and relax. I love going there for late evening walks it's the best.
