The Historic Site & Exhibits will be open daily from 8:30am-5pm.
Please note that we stop selling tickets at 4pm and expect a higher volume of visitors so we recommend you purchase your admissions in advance. Please pay close attention to the details as you make your reservation and on your confirmation regarding arriving 30 minutes prior to the selected time.
