  • Catch tourists run away! We offer you a tour pack "of the 4 museums" we gave up in the 3rd. The archaeoscope is an 80s animation with a lot of blah-blah to say nothing or learn, with very religious comments. The pompom is certainly the dungeon and the prison! We sell this to you as real places, but in reality it is a reconstruction with creepy and grotesque characters. The Thiphaine house is a small house that can be visited in 3 minutes without any explanation.
