  • Definitely buy your ticket online, or you'll have half a day off. Try to be there at the time you get it. The attendant directs you to a ticket office, where you print your ticket that you bought online, and it still has to be printed on you to give it to the toll booth attendant. It's a must-see of the museum, i went at the insistence of my friends, but it was really impressive to see the splendor of the Statue of David. It's definitely to be seen.
