  • This is one place I never managed to visit while studying abroad last summer so I was glad to get the chance to see it this time. The guided tour was very cool, and our tour guide Gary was very funny. It doesn't take long to see everything but it might be pricey for what you do get. I was able to get the student discount which saved a couple Euros.
  • Great place, with a new twist to the traditional museum storytelling style. It's done with a bit of humor and sarcasm, and it does wonders to the entertainment value and makes it easier to remember the details. Our guide Lucy was very well informed, very good at informing and had a great singing voice on top of it all. The price is well worth it, and be sure to book beforehand.
