  • A ballad for the family. Many busy when we went. He had to wait an hour the next train, which enabled us to prepare the visit-child reading the book bought at the shop (booklet very well designed I recommend). The ballad by train is nice and very informative, joking with the "singing" commentary to the guide. Large and small have enjoyed. This will remain a very good memory.

  • Walk in the little train with two children 5 and 6 years who have learned a lot of things. The scenery is very beautiful, the explanations of the guide / driver interesting. The Ecomuseum part has little interest. There may be a lot of people at the counter and when we arrived it was noted on the electronic billboards "complete departures for all day". We have made the line and actually display dated yesterday and had not been updated. Too bad because I have seen families turn
