Wonderful. Booking process was very easy. We were able to get some amazing shots!

It's quite nice. But as it's all inside and the windows are tinted, you don't get a true "wow" experience. It feels like watching television.

Neat experience, there's historical information and general facts all over the floor, tabletop games, foods and beverages. The view speaks for itself. You'll have your photo taken in different poses, and the option to have prints made using different backdrops. Great experience.
