I went straight up the audio guide centre where the lady gave me a headset and directed me to the garderobe and lockers (you use 1 euro to use a locker, but you get it back). Then you just head straight to the gallery and have your voucher scanned at the door. No queuing! Dont trust google for closing time... and also grab a map! You will need it.

Just walk straight into the museum! No waiting in any queue

This was so easy! With the GYG voucher I didn't have to get in any queue for a ticket and just walked straight up to the entrance and they scanned my voucher and I walked in. Very relaxing and amazing musuem. Would highly recommend.
