Its too bad we couldnt go with my neices (they were under the age limit at the time we went). Ok history. I think I had already seen a show on it so I wasnt surprised/did not learn anything new.

Such a quirky place full of history and a lot of creep! Definitely a must visit when in Sam Jose, especially if you like eccentric things that are actual historical sites.

Highly entertaining and part of history. Demonstrates the foible and quirkiness of perhaps having too much money. Enjoyed the tour.

The tour I took was about an hour and a half to two hours if I'm not mistaken. I think the website has a couple of different options. Good luck.
