This little mouse travels all over France, discovering every site: here he is at the Villa Ephrussi wearing a gardener’s hat; at the Cité du Train he has chosen a train driver’s cap and goggles. At the Château des Baux de Provence, he slips on a knight’s helmet to attack the castle, while at the Waterloo Battlefield he opts for the bearskin.
An activity book is also created for each exhibition. Handed out to every child for free, it helps them to look at the major paintings in the exhibition in an entertaining way, through different mystery words and various puzzles to solve.
