This museum was small, way overpriced, and uninteresting. There was not enough for little kids to keep entertained, or enough to engage anyone else. It has odd opening hours and isn't worth going out of your way for.

The main show is very good and performed in such a way as to be entertaining to all, with some in English too. As another reviewer notes, the descriptions are in French, but consider this is a small museum in France, I don't think it...More

Off the beaten track for American tourists - this was a big hit with our boys. They loved the museum displays and the magic show (in French with a bit of English when one of our friends was chosen to participate)

This is a small and pricey museum but is fun and displays a wonderful collection of quirky pieces. There was also a small magic show and despite being so close to the magician it was impossible to see how he was doing the tricks. A...More
