Good exhibit but you’ll feel like you’ve seen it all before in part due to the popularity of the whole thing. Would like to have seen more bodies as there’s only one or two per floor (?5 floors in total).

I’m not sure about groupon but on their site you can always bid to buy tickets. I got around €7 discount by bidding on a ticket. I’ve never done this before so was wary but no problems and scanned barcode after purchasing.

Wouldn’t need it.. there’s clear signs next everything both in English and Dutch. You would only need the audio tour if you struggled to read.

I have done months of research (mostly for the paris and berlin legs of my trip) and was not going to do an itinerary but now i'm getting anxious so I thought I would get something together and get some forum advice on what I should be adding!
