Ditch your guide and look around at your own pace . Really interesting, moving and deeply disturbing all at the same time. Unbelievable what human beings will do to each other once the barriers are removed.

The museum shows a short film periodically during the day, and I would recommend seeing the film before walking around the grounds. I happened to do so by accident and have no regrets. In addition, I would recommend using the headsets provided when purchasing tickets...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.
