  • A fantastic family outing. The museum is perfectly geared for adults and an entire floor to children. With a treasure hunt, dress up section and fun facts there is plenty to see and all done in a few hours. Kids won't lose interest and they will have great memories.
  • Excellent attention from all the employees. The guide material of the expositions is really useful, so you can take the road of the museum by yourself. The Balenciaga Exhibition was amazing. ♥️
