  • We sadly didnt have the chance to go inside as it was closed when we were there. That being said, the architectural design was beautiful. We really enjoyed walking by it every day.  more »

  • Great architecture, lovely garden, nice artwork, and to one exception, staff was nice. Affordable but be advised, it is not toddler-friendly and not disabled-friendly. Audio guide is recommended if you're not fluent in French.
  • Really beautiful and informative. It was more than I expected. Just as recommendation the information related to the audiogide and orientation paper was a bit disorganized and it took me time looking to which artworks they were talking about. Besides that, excellent museum
