Due to the crazy year of 2020 not everything was open. The map is very helpful for sure. ps . . . That is a dumb answer choice to the Question on the survey, just saying. Who did You go with? (My partner) What the heck kind of politically correct wording is that? If You really want to know, My answer is, I went with my "Awesome GirlFriend".

It was a beautiful place and like nothing I've ever seen before! It was really interesting being able to talk to the various actors who were very knowledgeable about their trades. I learned a lot more than I expected to, and I can't wait to visit again! I recommend checking out the sweets shop - absolutely delicious cookies!

We got there at opening and stayed til closing and still needed more time! We tried the beer made on site and enjoyed it very much. It will be ever better when the Covid-19 threat is over and you can go in the buildings without waiting. Personally I wouldn't take small children because there isn't much for them, but we did see several strollers so it can be done. Great for school age kids. I attended with both of my boys when they went on school trips. They loved it!
