As you enter the main gate of the park you find two "houses" embracing the sides of the gate. These were originally constructed to be homes for the guards and today one is a gift shop and the other was just recently opened as a small museum (yes extra entrance fee here). My first impression upon seeing these two structures was an expectancy, a sort of waiting, a waiting for Be'er Rabbit to exit one and a troll the other.
