Eugenie was an amazing guide!! She did a great job showing my family the highlights of the Museum and told some great little stories about individual pieces and collections/artists that are not in the audio tours. Our ages range from 12-69 and she found something of interest for each and all of us. She speaks English fluently. She was always making sure the teenagers comprehended her line of thinking. I cannot express, enough, in words, how valuable her knowledge and time were to us.
