the property is absolutely beautiful and full of things to look at. Very nicely done. IF on a hot day, make sure you bring water as it can be quite hot.

Is there a place to eat near the museum other than the restaurants on Park Ave? Doesn't need to be fancy at all. Thanks.

Hi Renee, If you head east from the museum (turning left instead of right when you leave), you'll find plenty other restaurant options.

It was $4 for seniors. I believe the admission price is on their website. It's often under "Plan your visit."
