Amazing space, with super informative attendants, some were more like curators. The top floor has a steel mesh structure, quite fun to go on.

This museum is FUN! The internal courtyard has fine old architectural details and installation-type exhibits but the huge glass roof has a net underneath where adults can become children again and bounce around 30 metres above the floor! I LOVED it!

Reduced fee for students ( need to show student ID) 10€, for children is 2,5 and 12 € for adults ( if there is a temporary exhibition ) but you get good value for the money !
