Really thought this would be interesting, However, there was very little in the rooms. No Guide. No Information. Took us 10 minutes. Young girl who took our fee answered a few questions, but overall very disappointing.

If you have time this si an interesting although not unique look into medieval life. You are in the US and this stuff is all around you everywhere. If there is a fee it is nominal.

It seems to just an old historical building looking back into the time of how life was. Other than that, it does not seem clear if visitors are allowed to enter the place or not as I could not find any sign to indicate this.

We went out of our way to find this, walking across town. When we arrived it was 45 minutes before the advertised closing time but the door was padlocked shut.

Great place to visit with lots to learn. A lovely cafe and a gorgeous garden to view. There are some lovely herbs to smell and the bees love this.
