“Great tours for those interested in history”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

While crowded during the busy season, the tour was full of facts and interesting anecdotes. I'm not sure kids would find it as worthwhile. The tours are free, unique in the city.

Neat place and we were pleased to find there were a few geocaches in the area! We were a bit afraid of looking suspiscious but the guard there knew about them so it was all good. Lots of nice scenery there also.

Beautiful building inside and out. You can go inside and take a tour or self-guide your way through. Incredible detail in the architecture and design.
