The building and stone statuary exhibits are wonderful. And the unicorn tapestries and displays of gold are lovely to look at. We had no difficulty until we got to the gift shop and the lady there apparently did not want to be there. Was chatting...More

We arrived a little before closing time because my partner sprained her ankle on the way. Staff immediately took us to the elevator, didn’t charge us, and took us directly to the tapestries. The tapestries were truly amazing, but the staff were wonderful!

The museum does have an excellent gift shop but I don't know about the needlepoint. They did have a beautiful scarf depicting one of the tapestries but it was quite expensive. I believe they had some pillows as well.
