“Beautiful Building but couldn't get inside!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

It's an amazing buidling from the outside. Wish we had been able to get in. Wouldn't go out of my way to see but if you are in the area for any of the other attractions worth seeing.

Across from the park is this lovely colonial building and next to it a place to sit and contemplate or people watch while consuming great coffee.

“Beautiful facility. Try to catch a performance”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Striking exterior appearance that is a popular background for photos for wedding couples (and tourists). Try to catch a performance in the theater. Some are very good local performers and some are by well known international performers. Prices are reasonable. You can buy tickets at the box office at the right front of the theater. Just go up the steps like you were going to enter and look to the right for the ticket booth.
