What a beautiful place to visit. We walked right in and there was a person at the desk who offered us a map. We enjoyed the videos which helped explain the history of the building as well. The building had so much marble. It was on the walls, the floors and even some of the hand rails. There was an 8' crystal chandelier in the middle under the dome and the place was huge. Very impressive. They also mentioned there was a free museum in one of the other buildings. We went there and were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the collection and variety. Definitely a must go if you are visiting the area.
