Everything is organized and we benefited from the museum map and audio guide (both are in several languages), we had access to all the museum rooms and other necessary things such as changing room, bathroom and cafes. The report price/quality matches.

The Army Museum is excellent and the grave of Nap. is a must see. I would recommend getting a tour guide to make heads or tales of all the different weapons and uniforms throughout history, so it does not get monotonous. You need about 3 hours+ to do the museum.
