  • Very nice Museum to the gently surreal installation. The visit is done audio-guide to the ears at the sound of the melody of Satie. Each room offers a nice find Visual, and beautiful info & quotes. Some facilities are quite captivating. But the easiest way is surely the most striking: white piano playing alone in a room with beam apparent in white, with harbour views.
