It is a little bit disappointed for the trip. There is no access to the building as construction is going on. The tall fences are all around the site, giving you a hard time even to get a glimpse of the building. It might be helpful if there is info available online about its plan of re-opening.

The Bowne House has preserved the original artifacts. You walked through history as you walked through the place. It was interesting to see how history was made.This trip is for families, older students, and history buffs. It is a no touch display. Great house to visit. You can compare it to what we have today. That's very interesting!
