I visited the museum after reading reviews which spoke positively of the folks who led tours. When I got there, I was told that the experience was strictly self-guided. It may be that the fact that I was a solo traveler meant that I didn't...More

There is a lift that takes you to the elevator floor that gives full access from that point. Hours are from 10:00 until 5:00. Will need to get there by 4:00 in order to get a complete tour.
