I took my Grandson as he loves weather. Went in and felt is this it. We had to wait for the non paid volunteer to finish his talk with some adults. Then he came over and basically stated i will show you this part and...More
Had a great time here. Our student tour guide’s nose piercings were a little distracting, but what I was able to absorb between the distractions of her specially placed jewelry, she did a very good job. I would really recommend taking their tour if your...More
