  • My favourite museum. A bubble of peace in the middle of the city. We stopped in November to see the Black Indians and Kimono exhibits. Kinda wish the explanations were all translated to English and not only the curators notes. Many of the captions are only in French :( You might want to book your tickets before dropping by on weekends. We went on Tuesday - no queue at all.
  • I visited only the garden and it blew me away. It's like a little hidden piece of wilderness in an urban surrounding. At first you see the fence on the outside that looks almost like a part of the nature, a ditch with water and reeds and than you enter the garden up a little hill and the whole new world is opening up. Utmost beautiful setting with some light sticks that gave the space unrealistic, surreal feeling. You walk across curvy paths and there are hidden little oases everywhere.
