  • Really fascinating displays. Quite confronting in some exhibitions but great and very educational. Most displays are in English and in French so as a English speaking tourist you can still take a lot from it. The price is reasonable but be aware a lot of the exhibitions close at 10pm - they will start asking you to move on at 9.30pm... not at the closing time of midnight.
  • Very nice cultural place! with contemporary exhibitions, large rooms. The open time is the best...till mid-night with restaurant and bookshop! Pay attention because some things like VR area attend only till 22h!
