I have been here several times, both as an adult and a child, and every single time, I feel honored to be within such a piece of history, and just when I think it isn't possible, I always end up learning something new! I highly recommend this to history buffs and/or people who are in town and looking for something fun to do with the kids!

They may become bored or even overwhelmed with all there is to see here. And that would take away from this unique experience for adults. If you go, you have to go all the way through to get to the journal books at the end where you can wr...view moreite your reflections on what you've seen and heard.view less
