Very informative tour for over 2 hours. Tour guide was very knowledgeable as well as interesting and humourous. Building is under continual restoration but you can still imagine and see the beauty. Well worth the $15.00 fee.

Not sure how or when it's open to the public, but it's like taking a time machine. Make sure you get a chance to look at the beautiful architect and wood work along with the gorgeous flooring.
