We came here growing up because my sister had a collection, and not much has changed, but this place really doesn't need to. Today we stopped on our way home to Texas because I wanted my girls to see it, and they fell in love...More

It's a beautiful place to see. They have added things since I visited with my children. My granddaughter loved all the dolls. The chapel only interested her a little but she enjoyed it.

We walked around the front entryway after they had closed for the evening. The brochure showed lovely grounds and interesting displays inside the fence. Wish we had the time to visit while they were open.

Grounds were beautiful, museum and chapel were inspiring however not too memorable. Glad we saw it but would not necessarily recommend this as a must see. We had time to fill in during our visit, so it filled the void. Nice story though.
