We went with a small church group. I though it would be in and out in a short time but not the case. VERY well done, Its worth the admission to see the history of the area.

We walked in at 11am and Jim was just starting the tour, he asked us to join. It was well worth it! He had so much knowledge about Lake Geneva. I didn’t know there was so much history here! We will come back for sure!
