Self guided tour for $2. A lovely theatre, don't think there can be a bad seat in the house. Architecture and fittings were beautiful. Only wish there had been a show on during our stay.

This is a must-see! There aren't many places in the U.S. where one can visit an historic theater. This one is just beautiful!

For a mere $2 you can do a self-guided tour of this beautiful historic opera house. They give you a brochure that tells about the history and restoration. It is worth the few minutes to pop in and sit in theater seats to just take in the feel of the place and appreciate the beauty!

My husband and I stopped by during the day to tour the theater. We had the run of the theater the entire time--even as we went floor by floor and walked around to all of the boxes and seats. I recommend stopping by if you're interested and have 15-30 minutes.

There's also a little pamphlet with information about the facility. The cost for entry is $2 per person.
