  • Super cool museum. Lots to see! It's about 20-25 to walk through but it is WELL worth it! There's a restaurant as well but I didn't eat. Looked good though! Definitely recommend stopping in.
  • Super super cool spot to check out if you're into The Man in Black. All sorts or neat displays and information all around. Takes about an hour to take in and costs $20 US to walk through the museum. Although I didn't go, the Patsy Klein museum is on the second floor of this building.
