I am sorry to have learnt you had a similar experience - unfortunately I have not been able to take it to a higher level. However, I feel sure that those in control will sooner or later read the many poor reviews on TripAdvisor. Given the odd behaviour of the individual I don't believe it should take very long before the museum board realise their predicament....
It's a great shame....
