The magician makes the room act and brings children and adults on stage. We often laugh

A very pleasant outing
Written by Claire F., on 02-05-2022

We went with our 7 year old granddaughter who pushed all the buttons available, tested everything that could be tested, and happily participated in a magic trick during the show included in the visit. In short, she loved it and so did we. I recommend this experience to all curious people.

Old-fashioned but charming place. The activation of the automatons remains magical: our little children have tried all the buttons! And the close-up show is great.

Fun and playful museum - ideal with children
Written by Axelle Utzschneider, on 13-03-2022

Small museum with a very nice welcome. Visit in 2 parts: magic show to start then discovery of the objects and attractions of the museum. A lot of things are interactive and my 8 year old daughter enjoyed it!

Show too short
Written by DOMINIQUE , on 20-02-2022

A little disappointed by the magician's performance, too short, compared to other magician's shows where I had taken other small children. On the other hand, Martin, 8 years old, loved to manipulate and test the different devices.
