We did a Friday night tour and museum combo. Our tour guides did a great job, and were kind enough to let us tour the museum and shop after the tour even though they were officially closed. Check them out!

Visited this shop after dinner nearby. It has some very unusual displays and items. But it was a neat visit. And of course if you into the paranormal, etc, it may be worth a visit.
