The hours are correct as listed,... however, it is important to note that Sunday hours are a little looser. The person that led our tour and was very knowledgeable also ran the visitor center. So he needs to lock up the visitor center and then lead the tour. So it depends on busyness. Saturday there were two people in the visitor center and the hours are pretty much accurate. The tour lasts about 40 minutes and you can go in all three stories. Soon the adjacent building will be open
