  • This place is awesome, but the hours I won't even update because this place is extremely undependable concerning when they are open. This, one might assume, is because of the capricious weather here, but that's not the case. It is just open when and if someone feels like it. It's extremely frustrating.
  • Great little museum. Awesome view from the observatory. Only $2 to enter and includes a guide. Worth visiting.
