  • To do absolutely with young children. Kindness and pedagogy of the healer who really makes the kids involved. My son could feed one fish, prepare their food and again other fish in front of visitors to the Museum. The kindness of the healer and his pleasure to give explanations are a pleasure to see. The price of the workshop included the visit of the Museum, which is perfectly suited to the young public. Thanks again for a great time. Educational workshops are held regularly, it is the second in which we participate, we'll be back.

  • Not bad as a museum especially for children. Make extra activities, otherwise it's a bit short.
