This is really a protest review as I chose not to participate in the tour of the place. I visited Fonthill Castle, which is on the same grounds as this place and about 100 yards apart, on The Smithsonian"s Museum Day. For those of you...More

I think I'll go back here again and again just for the tile shop. The $5 is worth it once to see the video and tour the factory with a live artisan demo. But the tile shop will be a source of gifts for years...More
