The small museum is great. The house is just okay as is the tour. Also what happened to your facebook reviews? I see you've gotten rid of them as they are much less favorable than the trip advisor ones. Censoring reviews is pretty sketchy!

We found the tour very informational, the grounds well kept and the atmosphere beautiful. The guided tour was excellent and the tour guide very knowledgable. The movie is worth seeing as well.
