This place is just awesome. We went on the last tour in the evening and were there as dusk fell. It was an awesome sight, especially coming from a criminal justice family. There are some extras that come with the night tour - so I highly suggest this time frame. Tour everything that you can here - you don't want to miss any of the details. Be sure you get to see the hospital upstairs. Sometimes it closes early - so if you are running behind on your audio tour - skip ahead to it. It is worth seeing. It is a beautiful ride over and back and great views from the island as well. Take your camera and lots of pictures!! You'll be glad you did later!
