    It would have been a Great Museum but there was absolutely no one working in the foundry and metal works shops.

The 10 Year anniversary gates where worth seeing, but there is no need to pay for admission to see them on the street.

    Great place to go for a quick stroll. The museum costs but the sculpture garden is free.
