  • I'm happy I didn't go here. I probably would have flipped out.😤
  • Really wanted to see the museum and house. Parking was a nightmare and not free as advertised. Have to buy tickets online. Visitor center guide was moving at the speed of smell. Several people waiting around for him to take care of them. He just got up and left the desk. He eventually came back. We wanted to do a virtual tour which are only once a month (website doesn't state this). After waiting around and finally getting the front desk guys attention we were too mad to keep waiting so we left. Should've been a smooth simple experience but as with most goverment ran businesses it was a total bust. Very disappointed.
