Interesting architecture of the building. Some nice museums of history but for the most part there is not much to do in here. Obviously lots of government representatives offices. It was nice and cool inside on a hot day for the up side.

Interesting museum in the first floor. We used a tour guide and enjoyed the information she gave very much. Lots of walking, but elevators available. We went on a Saturday which was perfect as the building was nearly empty.

Very good. Always have driven by going somewhere else but we found like the only campground there & then went to see. Cool. Learned a lot. Would recommend. Modest history features.

The grounds are well kept. I enjoy seeing as many of these locations I can and each one has a unique footprint
