I really enjoyed the museum. Alot of the other reviews seem to complain that you have to read historical information and that it's boring but it's a museum so I'm not sure exactly what they were expecting it to be. It's three floors and if...More

Don’t go! Not much to see and a waste of money. The show is not really a show. Nothing happens. Do something else in Paris.

We didn’t inquire about that while there. but the museum has a Facebook page, and you could try messaging them through that. It’s in both French and English. I hope that helps.
