    This museum is worth a visit! Surprisingly, it is a different era and yet the family is projects very well. Windows comes alive as your passages in front, showcase. Do without hesitation. The temporary exhibition on Mali, opens our eyes on new horizon... I just wish a home which is very correct, more jovial in such a universe.

    A wonderful display of beautiful moving marionettes. Some real skill in this. Kids will love it, but I think adults will appreciate the craftsmanship more. Just make sure you don't come between 12.30-...  more »
