Came here 30 Years ago. Loved it. So incredibly amazing how these structures were built. I went in winter and bought tickets on the day. Was easy with around a 15 min queue.

This is an awesome place to check out. Go early. Get the video guide! Also a very cool place to check out from the outside at night to see how they light it up.

Be able to walk thru this building with my family and remember its history it is a great expirience. We stand up in the line ~45 minutes to buy the tickets but it was worth.

All will depend upon group tours (may have HS, college students during that time). We opted for the tour because we wanted to see some areas where a tour guide is necessary for entrance.
