  • An excellent but small exhibit of photographs of birds. Very cheap to enter. Be sure to go to the second building on the grounds, included in price, photos there were my favourite.

  • What a shame: we strolled across the Pond Neuf, hoping to wander round the advertised gallery in this old water tower; only to find it is closed for the setting up of a new exhibition, until the end.....  more

  • About the place: A good place for photography lovers. The exhibition is quite small and takes less than an hour for a visit even if you pay for 2 exhibitions. Hope to see more contents and the storyline behind. Reduced price is 2.5€ for 2 exhibits. About the neighborhood: you will see this tower right after crossing Pont Neuf. I wouldn’t say that I feel the most secure or safe in this neighborhood but it indeed is quite colorful and cute. Better to come before it gets dark.
  • A nice surprise. Wasn't expecting such an interesting space and a terrific exhibit. Also have a photography library. For lovers of the photographic arts, this is maybe in the best place in the world.
