4/27/19 - What the article neglects to mention, and I wish it would, is that like other Benedictine monasteries, this abbey has a brewery. (I blame myself for missing out on it; I should have known better to look it up.) So we missed the brewery. We will be back for that reason alone, and I would love to participate in Vespers or another Mass.

The museum is unstaffed and self-guided. Zero explanation given for the oddities it houses, which lends to the whimsy. The abbey is beautiful enough that even walking the grounds is rewarding.
