We enjoyed the tour. Parking was a bit difficult. Great memories of by gone days. A bit too many people admitted for our tour time so felt a bit crowded. We learned a lot and enjoyed the music.

I didn't have any expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. Admission was reasonable. There was a long wait in the cafe but it gave us an opportunity to peruse the memorabilia that covered every inch of the place.
