Definitely a bit out of the way but very nice mission. We were on a mission to see most of the missions--we have now seen all but one. more »

What an amazing experience. Our sweet docent made sure we got the straight skinny about the Mission. We feel truly blessed.
Fun and very informative experience. Gift shop manager Franki was very nice and gave us information about the mission. I can't wait to go again.
