Ok museum but not more. Too expensive for what you get. Some attractions inside also cost but of course you can skip them. One small spectacle (show) is included and the magician was skilled. All ages can enjoy and he spoke both French and English....More

This is a cute little museum to visit if your kids enjoy magic, there are regular shows and the staff all seem to do magic tricks along the way. A good gift shop with basic magic tricks will see you spend a few more euro,...More

As my fiancé is a magician, this was a must-stop for us. It was a quirky, interesting place. We enjoyed the magic show. We mentioned that we were from Las Vegas so the magicians were kind enough to translate the show in English. Also, they...More

Nice little museum to visit with kids. You can choose to visit the magic museum and the automates, we didn't choose the automates. There are interesting objects and kids love to play with them. The magic show is also nice and well done. A must...More

My kid and I had a great time there. We came there by chance, and it was crazy, e.g. some funny boxes with holes for hands, and ..... I won't tell you, it was scary 😁 absolutely funny place!

I read that if your kids love magic, they will enjoy it. My kids are fans of magic, make magic and potentially the visitors of such museum. BUT this is stupid place to go, especially if you can't speak French. All explanations is in French...More

What a great little find! I had previously read an article about this little known museum in a magazine and I really wanted to check it out. Admission is reasonable - for €12 you can see both museums and a magic show. (The magic show...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
