  • The exhibition inside is unusual (Modern Art) and is not related to the history of the building. Be prepared for a shock. Intriguing but not to everyone's taste.

  • A pleasant day spent in family in this magical and surprising place. Picnic in the Park and wandering in the halls footprints of mystery... This is a place that is worth a visit! And... the kids loved (especially the fabulous animals and anamorphosis)! Response to the response to the "owner": indeed! the booklet given to children at the reception is very friendly and funny! (For adults too! and maybe even to advise those, slightly grizzled, that seem to not have understood the dialogue between the place and the collection of contemporary works...). Thanks again to all the team and its warm.

  • Nice Castle ruined by an exhibition of the most disgusting me gave to see. Animals have been butchered. An example, "the artist" stuck a body of squirrel with a fish tail, all stuffed... and people call it art...

  • An atypical place, amazing and out of time... an outstanding monument by its architecture, its Gallery of paintings from the 16th and his contemporary art collection featuring more than 70 international artists... A MUST-SEE!

  • Dialogue between past and present around art and the idea of the Cabinets of curiosities, the 16 th and 17 th century decorations, very well preserved, exciting temporary exhibitions with always curious discoveries.
