All masks and other artifacts of clothing were displayed and presented beautifully. I highly recommend this tour, I don't suggest bringing real young children as the urge to touch would be... More

Bill's talk and collection of masks was unique. Be sure to call ahead to make a reservation. Also his home is up steep hills so unless you are a strong walker take a taxi.
