We got here after they're normal hrs in the fall ; but we walked around outside & what we saw was very interesting & very creative. We will come back because we'd love to see the info they've got inside.

We stopped by for a short visit during the off season. Gift shop was closed. We still thought it was very interesting, if you stop make sure you read the story of how they got the park, it will definitely have more meaning.
