I visited this as a child, then again recently. Everything is the same, nostalgic and meaningful. Easy access, not expensive, and it will wow you when you walk in.

I hadn't been here since I was a child and I was very pleased to find that nothing had changed! It was wonderful bringing my teenagers here. They were skeptical but this place is so unique that you can't help but to love it.
