I arrived during operational hours. . Walked around on outside took pics walked onto garden area. .meanwhile looking for an open door to get in.. FINALLY came to where the parking lot is and went and rang bell 3x.. Finally a young lady came to door and I asked if Museum was open? She said yes but just a, minute. . Walked away came back within 30 seconds only to ask me if I can come, back at 1pm..I politely said no... and asked why she said tour starts at 1.. then I said is everyone OTL? She, said, yes. . So I said I would, try another day . "NOT !" Now how do you have these great little historical sites .. and have certain hours and days. . Listed. .. and no one around so that a person coming from the other side of the continent came to see Lucy Craft .. Very disappointed ......
