Interesting building and I found it interesting because of the symbolism of how the building was planned in a drum like shape, taking into consideration the environment, light and materials. Lovely building and interesting displays

We toured on Labour Day and there was no fee. There is no fee for the tour on any day. It was very interesting and well worth the tour.
