  • Cool place to take the family to during the day that's totally free. Fun to just explore, the guided tours are nice to see how things worked and learn the history. At night there are paranormal research groups you can sign up for online that are pretty neat if your into that kinda thing.
  • Awesome place to visit. Our kids loved see all the old stuff. The bathroom was extremely clean. Other visitors were polite and there are little signs everywhere so a self guided tour is possible or they offer free tours.
