Certainly worth a visit. Movement of queue was quick. Some knowledge experts inside to help. The walled garden area has plenty to off. A free attraction.

Such a neat place to visit! So much history to be seen. This is great for people of all ages. We did the self guided tour, but there are several options available that fits many needs.

If he is a true service dog yes, if he attacks or bits anyone there is a $5,000 starting fine. I have a service dog.
