I have never seen anything that took 83 years to build but this place is hard to describe. The size alone is staggering and very impressive. All the stained glass is beautiful and the stories behind the few we heard about were very cool. Woodrow Wilson & Helen Keller are interred here. The organ has over 10,000 pipes!
My only complaint, and I don't know if this was because of our field trip or not, was that our tour was very short. I also don't know if you are allowed to walk around the areas on your own. If so I would love to go back and spend some time here to really take in all it has to offer.
Also the gift shop only had one employee working there, which is a bad idea with a few bus loads of kids. They do have water & fudge which were both a hit.
