    Amazing museum and Mark made my granddaughter's introduction to it memorable. He is a gifted guide. Not a bad photographer either.

    Jonathan, the guide, was very engaging with both children and adults. He made a difference by demonstrating that he had knowledge of the venue and enjoyed his work.

    Our guide was witty and knowledgeable and took us to all the highlights of the museum. It is a HUGE place, so having someone take you to the “can’t miss” areas is a real time saver.
