Check online for walk times. The guide goes through in spanish and English. Otherwise you can just visit and go around yourselves. Watch out for early closing in Sunday.

Friends made special arrangements for my husband who is Jewish to see this magnificent historic Star of David in the courtyard of the museum. We didn't have time to visit the rest of the museum, but definitely plan to go back there some day.
