This Museum was by far the most confronting that I have ever been to. I don't know if it's because it's so recent, and in my lifetime.. but seeing what was done to completely innocent people by their own people is impossible to comprehend.. Yet,...More

Hi, I think you can get a guide but the audio guide is very good and offers flexibility when to listen and to what part.
