They were closed from 2-4, so we showed up at 4, only to find a sign saying they were coming back at 4:45 and the 5:00 tour was not available, so we can't see it until 6. Darn.... we were looking forward to it.

Stopped by and got tickets which are free but would have liked to have found it and been able to enter sooner. Not sure why they won't let you enter before the hour indicated on ticket because there was nobody around.
