looks like a church from the outside - well worth the visit. Good representation of the guilds which led to labor unions.

The main hall was in use when we visited. There is an exhibit on the ground floor which tells about the history of the city and the establishment of the plantation.

I think as I can remember there is a throne on the 2nd floor where you can sit and there is a cape/robe you can put on. Possibly? Ask the lady at reception desk.
