We went here on our first day in Paris thinking that it would help fight our jet lag! It's a small but quirky museum that feels delightfully old fashioned. The close-up magic show was excellent, and there were lots of odd interactive things. This place...More

Such a charming little museum, highly recommended. And, there's a magic show included. Perfect for children or for adults with the hearts of children, like me. And, next door is the museum of Automates so it's a two for one deal. Make sure you sit...More

This museum was small, way overpriced, and uninteresting. There was not enough for little kids to keep entertained, or enough to engage anyone else. It has odd opening hours and isn't worth going out of your way for.

The magic show included with the ticket is by far the best thing here. (and it was VERY good).The exhibits are fascinating, but most of the explanation cards are in French - and unfortunately my language skills aren't quite up to translating the intricate details...

We enjoyed this boutique double-museum, which included a short magic show. It's in a small underground location which contributes to the magical atmosphere...

Off the beaten track for American tourists - this was a big hit with our boys. They loved the museum displays and the magic show (in French with a bit of English when one of our friends was chosen to participate)
