“More Spectacular at Night”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The architecture was fabulous, but the highlight was seeing the whole facility lit up at night, the fountain and walking the grounds with the fragrant roses still in bloom in early October.

“What an interesting building!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It was a pleasure to walk through this lovely old building and to learn something of its interesting history. The stain-glass windows were a highlight, especially in view of the long history attached to each. Well worth spending an hour or two exploring this historic site.

“Fun tour, not your typical government building”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is a gorgeous building with some great artwork inside. The tour guide was fun and knowledgeable, and the actress pretending to be Victoria was a fun twist.

For travellers from the Pacific Northwest, this is a pretty special opportunity since we don't have as many storied places to visit nearby. Take advantage of this - it's free!
