“Nice Change of Pace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Was a nice change of pace -doing something indoors. It's a self-guided tour in a Victorian home that was built by a priest and his very aristocratic mother. INteresring to walk through the house. NOt a must do but we enjoyed it.

“Unique Castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Again, I didn't do this on this trip. I did it before I moved here in 2005 and then again a few years later when I took my then boyfriend now husband there. Because it was built by different architects at different stages it really is unique. It is filled with many artifacts and neat to walk through.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

The building has an interesting history, but is not in good repair. It seems like the admission price was high for the condition of the building. It is only worth visiting if you have nothing better to do.
