  • When the building is offered to you, nothing is bad news Wonderland staged indoors. Dare pass the door and let you charm or carried away by the story that will be told. The colors, materials, objects will enchant you as they managed to captivate us. Certainly all of these ingredients are typical of a Museum of the decorative arts, but the staging is a rare elegance. Kudos to the curator for this very good taste. It restores to French elegance all its letters of nobility. Your staff is also very knowledgeable on the collections. Bravo.

  • Strengths: Home (we have benefited from the reduced rate for seniors) - diverse rooms and objects well highlighted with good explanations about the visited piece and exhibits. Very beautiful exhibition of gowns of great designers (temporary), the Park is seems he very nice but it was raining that day so not walk. Weaknesses: no parking and display in the courtyard for the box office.

  • Nice place to visit, renovated with originality. We saw a great expo on dresses. The staff is welcoming and provides a very interesting explanation on the place.
