Get a sunrise to sunset permit a day earlier to enter the museum by your own. The official opening hour is around 9:00 am and closing hour is around 1:00 pm. Wait for the perfect low light to get the best light play between the room of the abandoned houses. I recommend mainly the buildings around the below mentioned GPS Position. They are the most popular and most spectacular, but nevertheless check out also the other houses. There is always something to find out.
