In this small kingdom dedicated to children, our little ones will be taken away by their enthusiasm on the discovery path of the new exhibition "time to wonder!".
Located on three levels over 600m², this exposition, welcomes our young adventurers to discover through games, a path filled with small experiments. The 7 activity rooms and 5 workshops will bring children on the path to discovery of themselves, others and the world that surrounds us.
The Museum limits the entrance to 250 visitors at any one time (it is not possible to book), it is therefore essential during winter school holidays and during bad weather to arrive early enough.
