The museum had a prerecorded guide to go along with you. It had improved since the last visit. It even talked about gangs.

We wore headphones that informed us about each exhibit. It allowed each of us to spend as much time as we wanted with each exhibit.

It was an interesting place but I would not take my kids unless they like to read a lot about history. Price was ok and people were very friendly.
