  • Very nice site to visit, unfortunately we not were accompanied and it's a shame because we had to miss some details or anecdotes. A little effort on the showroom of object that smells musty.

  • As two young students of 17 years, it was impossible to visit the Museum as we were unaccompanied minors. I find it unacceptable to prevent young people to cultivate a minimum or prevent them from understanding or interested in the history of their region. I have even more difficult to understand that we have an obligation to be accompanied by an adult to be able to visit a Museum at 17.
