L'agence locale est à coté de l'entrée du musée. Salle d'attente avec places assisses avant le départ. Luis notre guide parlant français était excellent. Expert en peinture, il a su faire un choix dans chaque pièce de l'œuvre maitresse et nous l'expliquer, en soulignant l'évolution de la peinture au fil des siècles. Il a cherché à intéresser aussi les enfants. On recommande chaudement ce guide et cette prestation.

Could not understand our guide

Our guide was nice but her English was so limited that she couldn’t tell us anything but trivial comments and just kept repeating herself. And we could barely understand what she was saying. Our entire family just gave up and took the headphones off. Other’s in our group did the same.
