  • Hit the Museum specifically, came to see the exhibition modern costume. Interesting permanent exhibition, you can watch and without audio. The Palace itself is similar to other French castles, so two trips in one place!

  • A fantastic museum which revives our history through opera and theater costumes...a trip through the ages, the arts and fashion! You will surely like the permanent exhibition on a great dancer, choregraph and producer : Noureiev ! Please do not forget to enjoy the premices : a former military garnison, saved from destruction thanks to its patrimonial protection. Stairs are splendid !
  • A very interesting museum located in a beautiful building and area. There is a main exhibition and a rotating exhibition that changes periodically. If you're in the area or passing through, I'd recommend you take a look, it's definitely worth it.
  • Interesting visit and our guide was fantastic! The building is new but has an old school vibe. Really cool!
  • Ok
  • Excellent - especially the Shakespeare exhibition - but always brilliant
