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

Ok museum but not more. Too expensive for what you get. Some attractions inside also cost but of course you can skip them. One small spectacle (show) is included and the magician was skilled. All ages can enjoy and he spoke both French and English....More

This is a cute little museum to visit if your kids enjoy magic, there are regular shows and the staff all seem to do magic tricks along the way. A good gift shop with basic magic tricks will see you spend a few more euro,...More

As my fiancé is a magician, this was a must-stop for us. It was a quirky, interesting place. We enjoyed the magic show. We mentioned that we were from Las Vegas so the magicians were kind enough to translate the show in English. Also, they...More

Went to Paris with our 9 year old son who is also a budding magician. This is a most fascinating place! One of the best parts is the building it's in. It's deep in this cellar with low domed archways made of very old stone....More

When visiting Paris, it shouldn't be a priority. The small museum has some old illusionism apparatus and story and the ticked includes a small magic show, which is followed by a guided tour. Unfortunatelly, for non-french-speakers, it ends up being just a place to see...More

I've read several of the other reviews and see both sides. Essentially my 12 year old son and I had a reasonable visit; the very charming magician who did the magic show was easy to understand (and I speak very limited French) and the humour...More

Nice little museum to visit with kids. You can choose to visit the magic museum and the automates, we didn't choose the automates. There are interesting objects and kids love to play with them. The magic show is also nice and well done. A must...More

My kid and I had a great time there. We came there by chance, and it was crazy, e.g. some funny boxes with holes for hands, and ..... I won't tell you, it was scary 😁 absolutely funny place!

you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
