  • A very nice sit touristique, present interesting exibitions, nice architecture, there is an entrance to pay; you will find a library with interesting books and a little restaurant.  more »
  • Absolutely great food, beautifully presented & good service all at an affordable price. If you don't like the look of the exhibition, just eat here!  more »
  • Not sure about others, but when I came with my friend, there were three exhibitions available. All were pretty bland. This place is negligible at best. Not worth the €5 IMO.  more »
