The museum, while beautiful, is enormous and could be overwhelming, especially if you are limited on time. Having a guided tour was amazing as our guide focused on the highlights of the museum while providing some awesome details that we would have otherwise missed. I think this is the best way to experience the museum and can easily recommend it. Additionally, our guide - Angela R. - was excellent. Enthusiastic and informative, she did a spectacular job.

Good for the first time visit

Tour was short and sweet, but the guided tour gave a good head start in exploring the gallery. After the short tour, you're free to retrace your steps throughout the gallery to gaze upon masterpieces and artworks and rooms that the guided tour did not get a chance to explore. All in all, it's quite worth it to pay for this if this is your first time.

Excellent tour by guide Martina!

Martina was smart, knowledgeable, interesting and funny. Doing this tour and booking in advance was worth the cost of skipping the long line in the intense heat. The museum is definitely worth seeing!
