  • Purchasing a ticket is an effort and an interruption to the conversation between guards. I was not offered a guide (I had to ask) and the ticket seller finally gave me one that wasn’t working...

  • Never leave reviews for anything but just wanted to leave one to say how kind the workers were! I don’t speak French, yet the lady at the front desk was very nice and welcomed me and the woman sitting in the main room spoke English and directed me, to make sure I saw every room. The gallery was beautiful as well. Recommend:)
  • Fresh, clean museum with a very kind and super helpful staff.
