I stopped in and had a few questions for staff. They were very helpful. The gift shop is stocked well and there is a lot of good information for visitors. My kids really enjoyed the gondola outside.

This is where the wonderful French-Canadian woman gave me good information about Golden and recommended the wonderful restaurant there, The Turning Point. Great regular meals! Slightly pricey, but worth it--every dish was great.
