We went on a Friday night which is free of charge. We didn't have much time and opted to go that night. It was very crowded but we did get to see many exhibits there.

Fantastic museum! You shouldn't miss it, but take your time because it is HUGE! You can get a little tired, so go with plenty of time to enjoy it.
