I joined a free tour on Wednesday with my 11 weeks baby. They started on time and the guide drove all of us to an exterior and interior tour. This place is worth to visit for its peculiar architecture and historical value. Even not a palce for kids, I was welcomed to join and they provided me a room for breastfeeding. Thank you!

I took the Wednesday tour today and enjoyed stepping back in time at this place. The guide was full of historical knowledge as well as specific facts of this home. Best of all, it was free!
