Well worth the visit. Recommend to watch the short film in the visitor’s center. You can spend about two hours here soaking up the grounds and building. Important American history preserved here.

We weren't sure whether it would be worthwhile visiting this site but it certainly was. The visitors centre shows a film that gives the context of he place and then you are free to wander about the buildings. It was a great place to visit....More
