My elderly parents had a terrible experience there. Lee Manual is uncooperative, difficult person we have ever done business with. Our experience dragged on for over 2 years. If you want to buy a bronze statue , please buy it else where .

We enjoyed a tour of the museum and facility along with a visit with David Manuel. His art in bronze is amazing. Lee's passion for the project is fantastic. I would love to have one of their bronze's. One of these days.
