  • We could have easily stayed for much longer, but a wonderful morning spent here with the kids. If we return to Perigeaux, I will come back here with a small picnic lunch in the beautiful gardens for half time. The architect and everyone involved should be applauded. My only wish was that I was better at French so I could read a bit more info about each exhibit. But a must see nonetheless.
  • Awesome musee. But i am a Rome fanatic
  • Super"!!!!
  • Site well highlighted by the very bright building, but the explanations on the House are too simplistic. They put a lot of ways to install shelves everywhere, I regret that it has not put the same means in explanations.
