  • It is definitely worth your time. I had a great tour guide named Naomi. You learn so much here, and it has a great history.

  • Awesome place!! With a great show of the German Culture!! A must see of you love local history!! :)
  • Went on a Friday to discover that you need to make reservations for a guided tour. Despite that, the nice woman at the center described the area and said she could show us the school house there. It was very interesting and she provided us with lots of interesting stories. I recommend making reservations to see it all.
