My husband and I really enjoyed this informative visit. I recommend not taking young children, unless government is a serious interest. Jr. and Sr. high school kids would probably get a lot more out of it than my kids did, so I can not give it a 5-star review. It's not for everyone. But our tour guide was great, and we will be sure to go again when our kids (ages 7 and 9) are a little older.

I also recommend going when out of season. We went in the summer and it was pretty crowded. Aim for a time during the school year when there are no school breaks (remember, up North schools have a winter break as well as spring break). Also, avoid weekends if possible.
