The museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is a very well kept museum with lots to learn from. Make sure you climb the mountain to see Stevenson's Grave. The views were amazing.

What a place in time. The history is frozen in time and will be preserved for many to see it throughout the years. Love that place and it's glorious beginnings.
