Definitely recommend. Truly amazing what he did. Collected and catalogued items that he foresaw would become 'extinct' with the advent of the industrial revolution. Great for adults and older kids. Do Fonthill too. His residence.

There is an elevator but there are still some steps and narrow walkways. Elevator does not go to lobby so you have a flight of stairs to get to level one where elevator is.
