The guy talked for an hour, while we sat in the museum, so that technically the tour was 1 hour and that wasn't enough. You also don't see much on the tour and the equipments (photos) the guy is using are old.More

We actually took the city bus over because we heard parking was a nightmare. When we got there we could see that it was really bad. There didn't seem to be any parking and there were traffic jams on pretty well every street.

Sorry, I've been out of the country without Internet access, I agree with the other comments, I took the 1PM tour on New Years' Day so traffic was light.
