  • Don’t bother coming on the weekends, there really isn’t much to do other than walk around the General Assembly and the courtyard. Try getting a tour if you can. However, the building itself is really impressive, and is filled with history. The overall feel from the interior is reminiscent of an upscale conference centre from the 80s.
  • Good place to visit with kids. There could be too many views expressed on the organization by too many people depending on which side of the coin they see. But helps to show the next generation the lofty ideals and vision envisioned by great people. Who knows one of those kids might be inspired enough to go on to further those ideals.
