While this was quite pricey for the what you got it did have lots of nostalgic appeal. It is a museum of magic with details of how old tricks were done (some signs in English). We also saw a magic show and there were some interactive things that we all enjoyed. There are also a few surprises! Enjoyable.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
