  • Very interesting. There are a lot of different parts. The tables can be interpreted in a number of ways. 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.

  • Alien Museum, very interesting, very well done. Of course for category 18, but between the girlfriends, we were super-happy with our visit. 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.
