All aboard the Orient Express

The Orient Express exhibition is fantastic! We just get into the train itself as if we were in the 20’s, the Orient Express golden age… We are permanently confronted to a mix of history, legend and fiction throughout the exhibition.

It’s made up of two parts : the first one within the train itself, the second one in the Arab Institute building with a kind of museum dedicated to the Orient Express : archives, pictures, photos, posters…

I personnally think that the exhibition is for children from 5 years-old. For the little ones, it’s rather difficult because of the stairs, the narrow hallways and the impossibility to use strollers.

You should make a reservation before going to the museum because it’s overcrowded. You can go on the Arab Institute website. Tickets : 10,5€ for adults, free for children under 16 years-old.

Hope it will please you!!!
