Not clear on your question. If you are refering to today, perhaps because of the holiday they closed earlier. Otherwise they normally would not.

Take the Tramway (not Metro) R indirection of Roubaix and stop at Villa Cavrois then it’s a 10min walk. Trip should take about 15 min Or by car, follow direction to Croix. Street parking available. Enjoy!
