We travelled by Metro then walked to the museum only to find it was closed because it was the feast day for the assumption of the Virgin Mary. It did not say this on the website. We joined a queue of others outside the gates...More

Where could you find Picasso ceramics, Thierry Mugler and Yves St Laurent outfits, 19th century art, 100,000 textile samples, a textile-related garden and a table made by Picasso and Giacometti, all arranged around an art nouveau indoor swimming pool where the former changing rooms are...More
