Most enjoyable. The exhibits, film, and tour were very informative. The ranger on duty for our visit possessed a wealth of knowledge and shared it with us enthusiastically.

The construction of the building & story of the Vanns was very interesting. I was also looking for a connection to the Vanns in my ancestry.

Unfortunately, the Chief Vann House is closed on Tuesday. The hours of operation are Thursday - Sunday 9 am to 5 pm. Maybe you could hold off your trip until Thursday?
