    The start of the visit seemed endless with our 6 year old son. The part where children can touch and participate very late and is fairly reduced so mixed experience. Too bad because what is being proposed is really nice but too short. For the curious, however there are full of beautiful varieties of surprising and interesting news.

    Mushrooms in a cave. What's not to like. Well it may be a bit tacky but once you get to the real thing - live mushroom growing - it's ace! Also they've got mushroom beer. These are some fun guys (get it...)

    Interesting and off beat museum that would be great for kids. They sell a host of local mushroom theme products in the gift store. The signs are in French, but there is a free guidebook in English.
