Only do if you have the time. It is only $5 and took under 30 minutes. Easy to walk through and the terrace is calming. more »
Absolutely beautifully kept building, and garden/grounds. This is a real historical gem, I have visited here more times than the Alamo and believe it has no lesser amount of significance. It's actually a lot more pleasant of an experience to visit than the other tourist trap. The staff is very polite and helpful. I appreciate the bits of explanation throughout the rooms.
Nice place to visit. No a/c in building, but they've set up lots of fans, so go early in the day if it's summer. We spent about 45-60 minutes enjoying the rooms, exhibits and neat old furniture. Price is cheap ($5/ person with senior rates at $3) and fair for the amount of time we spent and what was being presented.
