This is probably the best way to experience the huge museum for the first time so that you can make the most out of it. My guide Daniel is a great storyteller and customized the tour to my interests. I got a chance to take some pictures to share with family back home.

A fantastic tour with Daniel, who was interesting and knowledgeable. Also, we had two kids (14 yo and 11 yo), and Daniel was excellent at keeping them interested, while making it great for us oldies too. Highly recommended.
