Beautiful building but no tour guides to light the way around. The desk staff will not even let you tag along with the organized tours for large groups. Most states this size have guided tours for all people who visit.

As far as I am aware, it is closed at weekends. Normal hours are Mon - Fri 9am to 5pm. We also needed identification as well to get in, so don't forget to bring this with you.
