  • 2 stars deducted for the unbelievable price tags. Make sure that you offer 1/10th of the sticker price.
  • Very expensive. Probably four times more expensive than it should be. Don be fooled by the fact that it is called a museum, the prices listed aren't the price that they want you to pay. They expect you to haggle and give you the hard sell. Personally I would have bought a lot more if the prices are honest upfront. I don't do this haggling rubbish. Give me your best price and I will either buy it or not.
