Stopped in while waiting for a friend in the area and we were blown away by the space. Its a remarkable building. The collection of cartographs inside was cool as well.

They had a collection of maps of the world from 1400- to 1600. It was so intresting to see how much the world view has changed. Their collection changes every day to months. The admission is free.

Not as much to see as I was expecting based on the size of the building. Several cases contain old maps, interesting in how inaccurate they were (from when Europeans thought America was Asia). I liked looking at them, but if you’re looking for a fascinating museum to spend an afternoon with your family, this isn’t it.

Nice venue. Beautiful and a bit creepy. It has the vibe that some dark things have occurred. I believe there used to be operations performed while people observed from the balcony. If this is the case, I can only imagine what kind of archaic and creepy procedures went down. Nonetheless, good place for a wedding.
