The people are super friendly. They offer a self guided tour with the option for an audio tour. Take the audio tour; it really covers the history of the building. I was really impressed by the details inside the building

The docents are very knowledgeable. It is beautiful. You learn alot of history. There are a few small elevators to help with the steps. There is a cafe with reasonable prices that should satisfy the appetite from all the walking.
