  • Very thoroughly labeled displays, it's a lot to take in on one visit. We visited on our own, not as part of a tour group or educational seminar, so self-guided. I think I'd get more out of a guided tour, but there are also lots of printed brochures on a variety of construction methods and energy efficiency techniques, etc.
  • Awesome place, but make sure to register ahead for classes, because they fill up fast!
