  • A very nice and beautiful surprise for this visit out of time! Guides: extra and enthusiastic! A return to childhood that will delight young and old! We have never visited a museum also interactive. To do and redo. NB: think to book on the internet and provide two hours of guided tour

  • By age adult is forbidden things we were doing being minot, being in this age of recklessness. Trip proposed by this museum through stories in history. Let live you the METR of a guided tour of 2 h, where everyone can play, dance and be amazed. We came with people with reduced mobility and if the pad makes the little obvious road, we are fortunate to be guided by free (that he apologize if I scratch his name) and who supported us, we volunteers accompanying and enabled all to have fun. I do not often put 5 stars, but the 5th is free for you. In my name and that of the APF91, thank you.
