While the Palais Longchamp itself is an attractive piece of architecture and the walls within the museum are beautifully decorated, the exhibits themselves are not particularly impressive considering the price of entrance. The price may have been more worth it had we been able to...More

We ended up buying a ticket for double entry to both museums inside Palais Longchamps. This one wasn't particularly impressive unless you like looking at stuffed animals. It's the kind of place our kids might have enjoyed when younger though. Most of the information was...More

Proper old school museum with a series of bad taxidermy faces. You can have fun with these :) the highlight of this place though was the art exhibition, which may be temporary. Just amazing. The building, was also impressive. It was a way to pass...More
