We have been to a number of the best museums around the world and this museum definitely ranks amongst them. The quality of the exhibits was stunning. You could spend days in this museum and not see everything. Having the tickets in advance so there was no waiting in line was an added bonus.

I have given only one star because there is no advantage to pre-purchasing a ticket, The Institute considers it to be a third party voucher and therefore you have to queue with everyone else - it doesn't fast track your entry in any way.
