  • Spent a lovely 2 hours wandering around this very informative and interesting museum. Lots of guides on hand you can ask questions. They followed the Covid-19 practices and you will need a pass Sanitaire to enter.
  • My wife was refused entry even though she had a valid covid certificate. Woman on cash desk was not able to scan it so turned her away
