We have planned to see Mused des Automates every year that we've been to Limoux and finally made it this year. It is a little bit off the beaten track and might not be suitable for our most sensitive granddaughter. But it was like taking...More
We were spending time in Limoux in between our holiday rentals and came upon this museum. It was totally different to anything we had ever seen before. Might be scary for young children. The artistry on the clothing is amazing and the whole thing is...More
