The tour starts off walking and reading. You go into an open room and stand and then watch a presentation. It does give a good history but felt it could have been better. Parking is NONE and you need to park around the common or...More

There was so much to see that it paid to get the trolley trip ticket to get around. you can jump on and off anywhere as there are museums all over the city and each one of them is worth the trip alone!

The tour is informative and interesting but could use some updating. We didn’t get a chance to go on any other tours that day since they all close at 5pm, so nothing to compare it to. I imagine that there were better tours to go...More

My husband and I arrived at the museum as a show was beginning. We made the quick (and admittedly uninformed) decision to check it out. It was 24 dollars for the two of us. There are two exhibits - one, with mannequins, lighting and narration...More

I know there are some negative reviews but I thought the tour was very informative and interesting. For 12 dollars, it was well worth it.

it's 45 minutes, 30 is in a small theater room and 15 minutes of walking narrative. it's very simple but very interesting as well, it's worth a visit. very nice, informative and welcoming staff.

We went here after the dungeon. It was mostly a repeat of what we'd already been told there. If you had to choose between the two, I would probably do the Dungeon. Was interesting and our guide was ok, although as there were only 4...More

About 40 minutes then a walk through the rest of the exhibits. An hour and a half should see you in and out. I found it interesting but each to their own.
