Tour was good. The price was a little too high for a tour. They had umbrellas to use since it was raining, was a nice plus. Just a magnet on n the gift shop was $12.99 though

This was a very cool place to see and good for all ages. It was a very interesting history lesson and amazing to see what one guy built all by himself.

I would plan on about two hours. There is a tour all the time so you just tag along and learn everything about Ed and his coral . We enjoyed it very much and you probably will too. Have fun and sit in the Mother in law chair.
