Beauty of a building. Leave extra time to explore classrooms. Get there before 230 on the weekends if you want to see them all- otherwise the 3rd floor is open until 4.

You see this tower when flying in or when driving around. We stopped and went in. It is very impressive and the folks inside were very helpful explaining what it is and why it is there.

Head up to the 36th floor for a spectacular view at sunset. If you are lucky, a glimpse of the board room on the 40th floor is something special.

The Cathedral is only open until 4 PM because it is used for classrooms. Never dinners. Weekends the vending machines are available but the food court is not open for hot meals.

Most of the ones we saw looked accessible. There are elevators that provide access to all the floors.
