We started with the 12-min video (highly recommend - background info makes visit much more interesting) & then we wandered around in & out of buildings (a docent was leading a private tour & we went in on coattails!) thoroughly enjoying peacocks strutting around, esp. the all white one - stunning! Small children would be bored...this is a quiet & serene visit for historically-minded adults, esp. those interested in Hollywood memorabilia & the beauty of Carlsbad's rolling hills...we enjoyed ourselves for about two hours. If u walk the entire trail, u can spend much more time than that...very friendly & accommodating staff. There are benches & picnic tables throughout, as well as a beautiful wedding venue...I would most highly recommend for a pleasant, low key outing & plan to go back with a picnic basket! (we were quite warm in Feb so summer months would be toasty)
