  • An interesting enough experience while visiting Nantes. We were lucky enough to get in for free because it was digital week which was a nice surprise. They had several interactive exhibitions focused around Virtual Reality which fun. I expected a few more items on display but still something to see. The exhibition is tailored to French visitors with almost everything in French. The most annoying part is the signs displaying information about items are maybe 10% of what it actually shows in French. If you want to see some of his creations in full size head over to the nearby Island that has the giant elephant you can't miss.
  • Well, not much new to see. Whatever you might have read in his novels, you can see the original schematics and a few 3D models. Again, lacks descriptions in English.
  • Beautiful!
  • Small friendly Museum. A little light collection. Very nice museums night with entertainment by comedians. Doing with the children.

  • Museum disappointing, small and lack of interaction, yet the theme lends itself well. By hand pretty sight on the island of Nantes.
