“Fun place for exploring”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2010

All three floors are open to the public to walk through. There is a nice art gallery in the basement that is used fairly often for wedding receptions. The old courtroom (on the third floor) has been converted into a theatre. It is small but very pretty. The McKinney Repertory Theatre performs there and they have special events often. They have a Wurlitzer organ and use it to provide orchestration for silent movies. They frequently show old classic movies on Mondays. The second floor rooms are used for art shows and public events or can be rented out. Usually there is nothing in them. The cool thing about this building is all of the photo opportunities. The light is not bright so it is pretty challenging.

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2009

This really is a cool place to visit. You won’t need more than 15 minutes or so but sometimes they have free events that are pretty cool as well.
