Historic site is a must to see especially the new, to us, museum and surroundings that have been done since our last visit in '08. The museum was very interesting, interactive and well thought out. Kudos to the designers for putting this together.
Good historical place that was kept neat and clean. When we were there in late August it was not overrun by people so it was easy to see everything.
