In the middle of the USA stands an Egyptian Pyramid built by a man who had a passion for Egyptian art. Tragically, it had a significant fire so we could not tour the house. A presentation was given by the son and a tour of...More

For me, this was not worth driving 1 1/2 hours (80 miles) each way. I liked Mr. Onan. He seemed really knowledgeable about Egypt, and he injected lots of humor into his lecture. I went to this attraction thinking that I would be seeing the...More
