The museum itself was great! Really no need to really buy the pass because the cost of the museum was the same as the “deal” on here. There’s also the option after a certain time to “pay what you wish” after a certain time. You still have to go wait in the line once you purchase from Get Your Guide so they print you an actual ticket which kinda defeats the purpose of the app.

When we arrived the the Museum’s front entrance, just before opening time, there were hundreds of people already standing queueing in the -3 freezing weather, we were very relieved not to be joining that queue! We popped around the corner to the back entrance, as directed by the GetYourGuide app, where there were just 3 waiting and we pretty much went straight in, a welcome relief from the cold outside.
