The musuem is very interesting and well worth the cost and the trip. The ghost tour, everyone felt that for the price it should have been longer and more indepth. But thanks it was fun anyway.

The tour guide was very informative and entertaining. They took their time in answering every ones questions. Disappointed that they limited the ghost tours to just a few days a week.

I like this museum, if you're lucky (or should I say have a little bit of sixth sense) you will experience ghost on this museum. Try the restroom in the shops, if you're lucky the faucet will automatically turn on/off and paper towel will dispense by itself (not the automatic kind).

We visited and caught the tail end of a tour just in time for the firing of the cannon! We liked that we could wonder around after the tour. A fun and interesting way to spend a morning. Tours were not every hour as listed. I believe tours were offered every two hours.
