This museum is one of the best we have ever visited. We booked a private tour, which we recommend for anyone wanting the best experience. The museum is very large and so many things to see and learn about. Our guide Elvira was very good, knowledgeable and informative and made the experience even better. She could answer all of our questions and gave us very good insight of the history.

Our guide was very cordial, knew a lot to tell and spoke fluent German and English! He responded well to questions. Was very attentive. Gladly again next time!

We had a really good trip around with the driver/guide Simon who was really good at telling stories. We send the warmest recommendations to Simon.
