Spent about 3.5 hours here and still didn't get to see it all. Very educationally. There's a hologram experience presentation but if you have to choose between that and a guided tour I would say go with the guided tour.

Totally worth it, a very inspiring and meaningful place, where you can get touch by the important history events that mark humanity. Con: there was a construction in process in the middle of the exhibition so we didn't get to experience an important part of the museum. Pro: The hologram was awesome
