Now my partner is a PT (Physical Trainer) she wanted to go to better understand the human body and muscles etc, but this blew us both away, the level of detail and explainations were excellent. I cannot emphasise this enough, how good this was!

I’m not sure about groupon but on their site you can always bid to buy tickets. I got around €7 discount by bidding on a ticket. I’ve never done this before so was wary but no problems and scanned barcode after purchasing.

Wouldn’t need it.. there’s clear signs next everything both in English and Dutch. You would only need the audio tour if you struggled to read.
