  • The hours says this is open now. The gate was locked. When I call there the vm says nothing about today (8/23/19). Said they was open on August 10 and 11. We're came from Cincinnati, Ohio to see it.
  • Very disappointing. We only had 1 opportunity to visit at 1215 on a Tuesday & the access gate was locked with no one around.
