Enjoyed very much the tour, the pieces, etc. Makes me wish I'd chosen another line of work so as to be able to afford it.

My understanding is tours are available any days they are open. The tours are at 11 am. When we went there are just the two of us. The tour was $15 each and well worth it. You might want to call first to verify this. (541... More
