Happened upon this museum, and so glad I did. Truly amazing collection with broad inventory spanning centuries. Was able to enjoy the museum virtually alone (sad more people were not there). Did not get the recorded headphones, but noticed they are an option.

Totally worth $6 per adult to walk around and take in some amazing works of art. Along with some history. I would not recommend small children that have problems not touching things.
