This museum was small, way overpriced, and uninteresting. There was not enough for little kids to keep entertained, or enough to engage anyone else. It has odd opening hours and isn't worth going out of your way for.

Off the beaten track for American tourists - this was a big hit with our boys. They loved the museum displays and the magic show (in French with a bit of English when one of our friends was chosen to participate)

A wonderful mix of history, mini magic show (children get invited to take part) and delightful hosts who will happily chat to you and perform magic tricks as you take in the many curiosities, many of which are interactive. Tucked down a little street in...More

This was my second time here, and I must say I enjoyed it as much as the first time. I like best the automatas, but the machines in general are pretty cool. The magic show is nice (better if you know french). For me, the...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
