Only flaw, I think he will have to put indications for the meaning of the visit. We got a little lost in the different rooms.
Musée d'Alien, très intéressant, très bien fait. Bien sûr pour catégorie 18+, mais entre les copines, nous avons été super-contentes de notre visite.

Don't forget to stop by the Giger Bar right in front of the Museum. Free entry with Raiffeisen card
This museum is in a lovely small town in a beautiful region. The museum itself is interesting but requires an open mind. It is worthwhile to see if you like this kind of art. I am not a fan but it I don't regret making the trip.
Fantastic. They have a selection from his private collection and many of my favorite pieces on display. The person at the desk (today) spoke both English and French, and was very helpful. You get a discount if you go to the castle first and bring your receipt. Was definitely worth the trip.
