    Great guide and museum. Seeing The David was very emotional.

    September 17, 2021

    We were at the meeting point 15 minutes before the start time and then stood there for 45 minutes doing nothing and weren’t even provided with any information. We then lined up for about 20 minutes, still the host wasn’t speaking to the group to give any history or information or even to test all of us could hear through the earphones (which we couldn’t). We didn’t get into the museum until the tour was supposed to end. Then the tour guides microphone didn’t work for the whole tour (it was cracking and cut in and out constantly), so we didn’t heard anything she said.
