There is so much to see! 7 floors full of everything you can imagine that Henry Mercer collected. It's self guided So you can take your time going throughout the building. A must see if in the area.

There is an elevator but there are still some steps and narrow walkways. Elevator does not go to lobby so you have a flight of stairs to get to level one where elevator is.
