Went with the grandparents and family, really interesting network of tunnels. Good for a 2hr activity. The art installations are also weird and wonderful

Took my family there today as visiting France for two weeks, very interesting place when you see inside you will know what I mean, the kids loved it and the adults too, take a jacket with you 13 degrees inside.
