At the heart Vichy
François Boucheix's Surrealistic Museum From the Music Hall to the Museum Designed by the architect Antoine Percilly, 'the Alhambra', a neo-Moorish-styled building, was for a long time the mecca of Music Hall in Vichy. Today's museum still keeps numerous ornemental elements from the original architecture. Dream and Light Back in 2006, François Boucheix, looking for a place to create his surrealistic museum, fell in love with this superb building, 7, Rue Sornin. The building work lasted for a year, and in 2007 the museum opened its gates to the public. The succes of this museum, where Dream and Light rule supreme, hasn't altered since. Many are those who, having visited it, come back to it to, after their own words, 'fill [themselves] with happiness and forget about life's misfortunes'. Open from April to October, the museum welcomes its visitors from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm, everyday but Mondays. To be invited at private sales or any event about François Boucheix
