Fast answer and good price
Rented the optional audio guide, but the thick accent did not help me one bit! Other than that, this museum is a delight
Having been to the Louvre Paris my expectations were low, but this one exceeded it! It's a beautiful space much more than Paris and the collection is no less valuable. I was amazed at the varied collection.
