Excellent value at 6€ pp. There were two exhibitions, one on the life of Rudolf Nureyev, including an half-our video of an interview, and a number of the costumes he'd worn. The other was on costumes from shakespearean plays and stills from many plays in which the costumes were worn.

The great thing about this museum is that it has only one permanent exhibition (the amazing collection of items and costumes from Rudolf Nureev which is exhibited according to his will).

The building itself is worth seeing if you are around, the national museum is worth planning a trip there - a short train ride away from Paris. Unfortunately the museum only offers temporary exhibitions to protect the costumes that are fragile by nature.

Very well presented information and exhibits. Video clips throughout the exhibition and a great film at the end. Live locally and never miss a new show.

Until December 31st 2012 the exhibition here features the entire collection of costumes designed by Christian Lacroix for the ballet La Source, performed in Paris in 2011. These fabulous costumes are the stars of the show, but the exhibition shows all the stages of their production, from sketch and fabric swatches to videos of the actual performance. In fact you...
