The hotel is very historical, you can tell they did their job to keep it immaculate, it is clean, they give you lots of information and at night the streets are very quiet and calm you can walk and feel the safe around, recommended.

For a 45 minute exhibit with a short film, we felt it was well presented and informative. Lots of hands on exhibits along with wide range of history education.
