  • Very nice. Assisted with a project there. It will be great when open to the public.
  • I Been Here A Couple Of Times When I Was A Kid&When Our School Took Class Trips/Educational Tours.The 1st Thing I'll Say To The Kids That Been Here As I Once Was, If That Weird/Odd Looking Bird With Wings Statue That Stands In Front Of The Building (The Totem Pole) Frightened You Or Scared You Enough To Make You Cry& Felt Traumatized During Approaching The Entrance Of The Place,Don't Feel Bad Or Embarrassed By The Frightening Site Of It, I Can Relate To Your Emotional State Of Mind...When It Comes To That Statue...That Damn Thing Scared The Living Hell Outta Me Too During My Trips Their As A Youngster LOL! However I Haven't Been There In Awhile So I Don't Know If They Still Have Tours With People Narrating The History Of The Place& The History Of The Land. I Hope They Do Because The Place Is Organized With Tons& Tons Of Extremely Rare Displays&Exhibits Of Things We Use To Have& A Great Place For Anyone Who Wants To Learn About History& Our Historical Past.The Tours Also Had Friendly People That Takes Pride In Educating Us About What Peaple Had Back Then & What It Was Like Living In A Era Before Any Of Us Was Born. So Many Interesting Displays To View From Wall To Wall,Room To Room. I Appreciate Places Like This That Helps Not Only Adults But Children As Well On Educational Learning About Our History&Other Historical Landscapes That We Don't Have/Might Not Have Anymore& Learning What Was/Is Built On Historical Lands In This Generation Of Ours. There Are Still A Few Places Around That Educates Us About Our Historical Past& This Place Is One Of Them.
