We came here on a guided tour and learnt all about the games they used to play here and it was so interesting. Definately needs to be walked around if you are here.

In love how a guide explores places like this with you, never assuming and always enthusiastic. This place is amazing and a guide will truly make this place pop for you. Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly.
