I love museums of this sort and visit them whenever possible. The place is lovely; the staff is not. You work at this museum people, you are not yourselves Queen of the manor. Eat some humble pie.

How cool is it but to walk in the footsteps of someone that signed the Declaration of Independence! Our guide, Kaitlyn was very knowledgable and friendly. Definitely worth the time spent!
