  • Building amazing, if you like architecture in sure the exhibitions are great. Lots of where stuff inside.
  • A small and free musuem featuring unique works that all appear to discuss 1950s utopian futures. Worth a look but I doubt it will be in every ones taste.
  • I went on a Tuesday so the museum was closed. I haven't been inside the museum so cannot comment on what's inside. However, the building is different from the rest of the built fabric. I cannot comment on the form because it an architect's artistic freedom to decide how the building should look like. It's a 10 minutes walk from train station do worth a visit if you are in Orléans.
  • Interesting Hard to find but worth it
  • An essential cultural venue. Whether on a guided tour at events or as a simple visitor. Ideal family outing. The concept of borrowing a work is great.
