Any top tips?

In Judaism, Saturday is the Sabbath, a day of rest, free from the concerns of schedules, everyday work, and commerce. For this reason interactive exhibition elements, audio guides, the Shop, and the children’s exhibition are not available. In observance of the Sabbath, admission is free on Saturdays, as well as on select Jewish holidays.
