But then, the museum in all this? Of course, we don't forget the culture buffs... You can take part in flash guided tours of the museum! (from 16 p.m. to 21 p.m.).

At the end of the day and until midnight, La Filoutrie will take over the museum courtyard and, for sure, will take you to the track in an electro atmosphere! In the background, you will enjoy a nice interactive mapping which will take shape on the walls of the museum…
