If you are going with Kids it is a good place to go, but since there is a small number of pictures exposed, you can spend at the most (in my experience) 1h inside the Museum. The outside is pretty but there is not much...More

The building itself is a wonder to behold (from the World's Fair in Paris, at the beginning of the 20th century - made of iron and glass) and what drew us to visit the museum with our two young boys, 4 and 6 years old....More
