  • Location to the Fund by a bossy cashier who pushes the expenditure by "imposing" almost his visit of the Museum of automatons who have no interest spending money and getting bored in front of tacky things. Then, is much more famous, a lot of paying machines and outdated storefronts of interest. The visit is saved in extremis by a little magic show, well done and very friendly. Despite this, the only memory of this visit is the reception of this cashier who should turn

  • What a nice surprise this charming Museum! My godson of 10 years being passionate about magic, I went to him, and I also spent a fantastic afternoon. While the visit theoretically takes 1 h 30, we stayed more than 3 h on-site, fascinated by the attractions of the 19th and early 20th. We had fun to operate all PLCs, enjoyed the magic show, and lights donated by Roger on the history of magic... We admired the gathered here, sights that most transport us into a Carnival of the Second Empire, the Belle epoque or alongside of the magicians who have delighted our great-grandparents. We were greeted with real kindness by an authentic passion, all magicians, and adoring share their culture and their enthusiasm for their art. The successful mission, and thanks especially to Roger! We will come back, this time to take classes of magic! The mother of my friend wrote me last night "a huge thank you, he went with stars in his eyes, and told me that he had the best day of his life with you..." No. how ;-)

  • 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.
  • Fun
  • Not very interesting.
  • Great for kids.
