I saw the 1 HR show at 4:30pm and was delighted by the illusions. I don't have kids and was pleased it wasn't just for kids. Also, I don't speak French, but, magic is magic and you can appreciate it nonetheless. Definitely value for money!

The museum is clean and nice, well organized and kids enjoyed it. The best was the show “shadows”, very interesting, excellent script and very good actors/magicians. Every 30 minutes you can see from outside a great “performance” of robotic dragons.
