    Very informative. They had period actors who really knew their history about the place. The gift shop has a lot of really neat stuff. Their galleries were full of interesting things.

    Nice little place. There is 3 buildings to go thru, and a period actor that gives a little talk. Just $2.50 for an adult. Hop on the trolley passing by. $2 for an all day pass. Hear some history and ask questions. Cars go by about every 20 mins
