  • Good
  • Visite rendue très intéressante grace à une guide très sympathique. Néanmoins le prix est bien trop élevé pour voir seulement 3 petites salles. Nous avions la chance d'être un petit groupe à l'heure ou nous sommes venus mais à 20 personnes nous étions déjà trop nombreux pour que tout le monde puisse profiter pleinement de la visite. Visite faisable avec un bébé mais loin d'être pratique, à éviter.
