Who doesn't like castles? Fun to tour and see all the unique items and collections. I loved the unusual windows in many areas and enjoyed the interesting lady who sells you the ticket.

The castle is impressive, beautiful architecture, self guided tour. Parking on top, anyone with problems walking steps may want to be dropped off at the front. History , furniture, enjoyable.

We enjoyed this self guided tour. It was interesting to see the wonderful detailed woodwork and windows from that time period. Might be a little boring for kids.

Took a self guided tour with the family. The kids did a scavenger hunt with a candy stick prize at the end. Educational for kids and adults!

I think the coolest thing in the castle is the coat of arms. It was late on a Saturday when we got there and got the last self guided tour. It costs $9 just to walk through it and look for your self.

I do not think it would allow pets unless they are therapy or for guide animals.
