May I ask you any questions? I want go to ABC museum, how can I get there fastest?

自然な表現

May I ask you a couple of questions? I want go to the ABC museum, what is the fastest way I can get there?

1. This sounds better than "any".
2. Missing definite article. You need to use the definite article "the" when you are talking about a specific museum.
3. This is a better way to ask the queestion.
The ABC Museum is half an hour from here. You need to take a taxi to get there. Just tell to the driver that you are going to the ABC Museum and they will take you there exactly. Are you new here?

Thank you. Yes, I am stranger here. Are there another ways to get there faster than a taxi?

自然な表現

Thank you. Yes, I am a stranger here. Are there other ways to get there faster than a taxi?

1. Missing indefinite article.
2. This is a better word to use in this situation.
There is one more way, but you would first have to walk for 45 minutes approximately, and than take a bus for another 15 minutes. Do you have that much time? If yes, I'll explain you how to do it.

Um, I think it's difficult for me to walk 45 minutes because I worsen a foot. I will go there by a taxi. By the way, where can I take a taxi near here?

自然な表現

Um, I think it's difficult for me to walk 45 minutes because I have a bad foot. I will go there by taxi. By the way, where can I get a taxi near here?

1. This is a good coloquial way to say that you have a foot injury.
2. This verb fits a bit better.
Taxis normally are easy to find. They are convenient and reliable. If you take a taxi now in unhindered traffic, you get there before noon.

OK, thank you very much! You have been very helpful.
