“Interesting colonial building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

It looks as if it has been transplanted in one piece from a French train station. Certainly worth a look.

“Beautiful old building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Lovely old building, close by Notre Dame Cathedral. Definitely worth a look inside and if you are after a few souvenirs we found the circular stand in the middle had some great items at prices better than the markets (especially silk/fabric bags).

“Worth a quick look”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The buidling is rather beautiful on the outside and worth a look on the inside too. The interior has a lovely ceiling and old fashioned telephone booths.Not quite the architecture you expect to see in this city.You don't need to spend much time here and will probably be there anyway as the Norte Dame Cathedral is over the road.

“A respite from the crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Great for photos, souvenirs or even postage stamps! Useful just to take a brief rest and to cool down (a bit). Most tourists hang out around the seating near the entrance, but there are benches at the back where you can sit and write your postcards, or just admire the architecture for a few minutes.

“Worth a quick look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We visited as part of the city tour and the 10 mins visit was about the right amount of time. Nice building but don't waste too much time unless you are really into architecture
