Very informative and well worth the time and cost! I did not realize all the details and time that goes into a bronze work.

A must see. One tour a day (11AM; about 2 hrs) @ $15/person and well worth it. We were lucky enough to witness a bronze pour.

We had seen a bronze pour in New Mexico but had not seen the steps of the process. This was an excellent 1.5 hour tour of each step of the process from the artist piece to the final bronze. casting

Very detailed explanations during the 1.5 hour tour. We were allowed to take pictures, there were statues larger than life! More sculptures to see at their gallery. Worth $15 to me.

Depending on who leads the tour, you may get a less than hour experience, or when one of the long time managers leads it, you are in for at least an hour and half! It was lengthy, but no step of the process of creating...More
