We spent two days with friends and still didn’t see it all. You can tour, take a break for lunch, then come back for more. No charge for the extra day. Learned so much.

This museum is excellent! We didn't know that the tickets were good for 48 hours or would have bought one the afternoon before, then visited again the next day. We spent about 3 hours there and could have used more. Such an excellent museum.
