What beautiful architecture. And even better the children loved playing in the fountains in front. They go from a fine mist to fountains- I would recommend taking cozzies or at least plastic shoes and a change of clothes and towel! Brilliant fun

Nice for small children to play with water on warm days. Very crowded. Don't fall for the marketing picture of it working as a mirror, water is never quiet enough for that effect.

Yes, the building on the left is a Free museum (Musée des Douanes), the building on the right is a government office, and the center one was the USA ambassade, but for now (for 8 years exactly) that's a restaurant, you have... More
