Difficult to find the host and where to meet them. When I arrived, I asked one of the people checking tickets where I should go to exchange my voucher. Went under the flag by the school (as she instructed) past the lines to enter academia. Didn’t see anyone. Called the phone number on the voucher who told me the person I am looking for is carrying a flag and I was able to spot him speaking to another group. Wasn’t aware that the children needed to bring proof (passport) to show their age for the child ticket. Luckily it was pretty obvious the 8 and 12 yr olds looked like actual children. Once entered, lots of people crowding around statue of David. Kinda wish I got one of those audio tours.

I was contacted a few hours before booking to inform me of a half hour delay. Good. The meeting with the reception took place a bit by chance, it may be that I had the confirmation in my hand and the clerk understood that I was there waiting for him. Waiting for 5 minutes to enter and then the visit.

The statue of David is amazing! And there are many other interesting works of our in the museum. The entrance to the gallery is very unassuming in a narrow alleyway. So it was not very obvious where it was and where we were to meet the guide. We did eventually find him just standing around on the street and from there it was easy to exchange the tickets get in line and do the museum.
