Protestant sanctuary on floor 1. Catholic Church in first basement. Jewish temple in lowest level. Temple has 1600 year old scroll. It was like a museum. Of great interest!

We were lucky enough to have a private tour by one of my son's friends who is a freshman at the Academy. She showed us around the campus and told us so much information it was amazing! If you don't have an escort, you aren't...More

No cost to visit. You will need a government issue photo ID to enter. Also, be mindful, if traveling with any weapons, they can not be brought into the facility.
