  • Tour Guide Dan was amazing. He made the tour so enjoyable. He remembered everyone’s names and has so many fun facts about everything on display. It’s small intimate tour through a bit of their workshop and some of the props they’ve kept from the movies. It’s pretty amazing to see what they can create! Would be awesome for kids who might want to get into the art of costume/prop/film making. Highly recommend :)
  • I'm not a movie buff,so it was ok
