This is definitely a really cool house and the family who lived there were amazing people. The only thing is I wish the tour focused a little more on history and a little less on the word of God. It’s fine to mention religion and...More

The family's story is very interesting, but the visit was ruined by the guide's proselytizing about everything from how great heaven is to the government of North Korea. It was horribly offensive.
