The tour was amazing. Our guide, Francois, was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the exhibits and the history of the museum. A truly lovely experience that I highly recommend.

The trip was amazing the guide was spectacular his name was fransoa I cannot describe how amazing the trip was

The Guide is very playful and detailed when explaining, I recommend the tour since the museum is immense

Reserved tickets mean a short wait, not a long one, if there’s a new exhibit then expect a crowd…
