Worth the small entrance fee and climbing the stairs for the views from the top floors. Some art and history displays to look at. The building is poorly maintained, watch where your stepping and take care on the stairs. Not one for very young children.

An interesting landmark. Unfortunately, marking the President - who himself has some very controversial views on the world. Dirty, and dusty and not particularly well looked after.

Grand Arch built for the president the only problem is only the president can drive through it .This causes a huge bottleneck of local traffic because it spans the main road !
