There are usually one or more temporary shows here and a huge permanent collection, which could be thought of as "primitive art," modern and old. I think almost anyone, of almost any age, would find this a great visit. I am disabled and find the place very "accessible." There is a médiathèque here, a theatre, a posh reservations-only restaurant, a café, a bar (in the theatre), ateliers, a very pretty garden, and . . . well, there is a lot! Their website can give you more details. "The Masters of Disorder" deals with many themes here, including shamans and religions, healing and mysticism.
