  • This is a place we say magic... too short. It is user-friendly, educational and makes him want to the illusion. A moment of peace and pleasures in this troubled world. 1:15, which is worth more when in store you can find of what become a little magician. The cashier, the guide and the illusionist of the show, are passionate and hosts happy to see us smile and laugh.

  • A very nice Museum for a visit with family or couple. Although it is not very large, there are many things to watch, both of the side "Museum of magic" that side "Museum of automata". My only regret is that the exhibits lack a bit of explanation. Failing to disclose the towers, more signage and videos would be welcome. Note two captivating close-up shows.

  • Super fun place to go with friends and an open mind! Really sweet magic show included in admission, super knowledgable folks working there
  • If you can't read French, don't go here! Almost all the signs and explanatory plaques are in French, with only a few having an English translation available.
  • Not very interesting.
  • The museum itself is very average unless you're taking kids there... However the magicians show was really cute and enjoyable
  • Good fun for kiddies
