Great visit. It was very easy to get around. The entrance was a little confusing as we were at the back and had to walk all the way around. Hood experience overall. Recommended. You'll. Need at least two hours.

L'ampleur de l'expérience sur le plan visuel et auditif, c'est techniquement et artistiquement une prouesse. Très bonne organisation également et un accueil des plus aimables....vous avez dit, Paris? Lol

The scheduled time for visitors to enter the museum is not adhered to, and it took more than 30 minutes to get inside. The experience inside is unforgettable in itself.
