Easy to find, just follow the painted paw prints on the pavements. Very reasonable entry price of 10 euros for adults and 8 euros for over 60's (sorry didn't look for children's prices). Plenty of space to leave coats and free lockers to leave bags...More

This was our Third visit to this Lovely Museum. If in the area it's a MUST not only for children but adults also. The opening separate presentations of about 15 minutes, are in German, English & French. Then you 'go on' a magical journey. Super..
