  • A very nice place to visit with family, with friends, without moderation. The architecture, organization, presentation of the costumes and the sublime space Nureyev are quite remarkable.

  • The Museum is very quaint and very interesting, with rare pieces and a perfect iconography, not to mention the videos that allow to deepen our knowledge. The life and work of Nureyev is profusely illustrated and discussed and it's pretty mesmerizing. All the other rooms also offer a lot to see and understand. Thank you and congratulations to all the people who designed this centre will not only seduce visitors!

  • 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
