  • Just the size you need for an exposition. Everything is located on 2 floors so you don't spend hours wandering. Expo well chosen and organized. The small coffee shop outside add a delightful touch in summer.
  • Great space, well curated, interesting exhibits. Located in the Marais, easy access by metro or bus. The Maison also includes workshop spaces for activities in the cellar. There is a small but very pleasant cafe in an outdoor courtyard.
