I visited with my husband and friends who have young children. The five-year-old daughter was totally excited about the costumes. Good explanations about items to help visitors understand the design and use.

Interesting museum but only had signage in French. Good collection of silk and lots of interesting artefacts. Well laid out with lots of detail. Friendly staff. Good toilets. Would be so much better with English signage.
