Just read about this!! For $5.00 more you can buy an additional ticket for some kind of high tea and snack? This will be a no host event but if you would like to meet me there at 2:15 pm in the front and take a self guided tour and tea. "If I have to work you on your own." I guess it is not usually open to the public but this is one of their rare occasions. I did call but information is not great. You can buy tickets online or at the door according to the lady I spoke too. Having lived here my whole life trying to do and see things That L. A. has to offer that I have not experienced yet!!
