  • 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.

  • 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.
