"Fabulous "

Easy to visit, it is in front of a subway station and in many bus lines routes. Museum of first presidential official home and presidential Headquarters. Interesting architecture and design from the early 1900's. The pleasant park is as good as the museum itself. Go for a picnic, a museum visit or both, it worth the time.
