    I found out it's likely I won't be able to make it there. I normally work until 9pm, and was hoping to sneak out of work since it's been a bit slow, but I've been told that some late projects are arriving. My apologies, and I hope someone can take my place.

      I'm pretty sure you can call and request a tour on your own...I went in April in the afternoon.

      I had tried a while back, but was told by the desk at the front that tours weren't available. I was surprised to see they'd opened up a tour. I'll have to go again on my own.

    The place was great but I wish that it had been more clear where to park and that it cost $10 to park on their lot.

      Hi Pilar, Really sorry about that. I was taken by surprise too, -- I thought there would be more street parking (especially after 6p) like the afternoon that I went to arrange the event.
