Very old and quirky building. Like a maze inside but with lots of artifacts and history. Very helpful staff and a very interesting house. Easy to overlook this place but if you like history then do visit.

Strangers' Hall is only open on Wednesdays and Sundays, and requires more time than you think. It appears small from the outside, and even once inside. But it is a delightful rabbit warren constructed in different periods, with vastly different architecture and decorations. The guide...More
