  • I had my son's birthday 8 years and everyone walked away happy, big and small. Very friendly staff, they are passionate and they share it with us, customization of the anniversary with little touches, 2 h 30 of dreams and magic. Thank you all and little dedication to Roger...

  • We went yesterday morning, at the opening with my little son and a friend with his little son, and everyone was thrilled. Very friendly staff, really friendly, amazing automatons, it tells the story of magic, which is very interesting, there is a show that kids loved, they are up on stage, and then a panel of illusions, really a very very good day.

  • Not expected down the stairway from the St. Paul Street 11 to discover a museum so original and so rich. Go - adult or children the same, all will be delighted. We were 2 adults and a group of 12 children! And we were very impressed. By the many treasures - and in particular Méliès - but also by the show of a magician ultra pro who works there: fly high. Very impressive. So yes, 5 stars! And the want to go back!

  • 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
