Nice folks in the discovery center but after driving hours to discover that one cannot solo tour the territory, I was vastly disapointed. Reason: roads too rough for ordinary vehicles. Well, either fix the roads or create more tours. Bummer!More

The total experience was much more than expected from the great museum, van tour and docent at the main house. All well done and enjoyable.
