We were part of a Tauck tour and this was the location of our farewell dinner. You can't beat the atmosphere! We were immediately welcomed by Wendy and the entire museum was placed at our disposal. We were able to tour any exhibition space. A reception of a full bar and wine and cheese were provided (paid by Tauck, I'm... More
