Unusual museums in Wapi - From 1 April to 31 December 2018

27 museums - 27 finds - 1 unusual itinerary!

The itinerary is like a score: the unusual comes in light notes, the rhythm in the leaps of a small, lively and curious character.

Your leprechaun, Solite, is the surveyor of a region that still hides a few mysteries. Moving between various sites, he invites you to a route marked by surprises from 1 April this year.

Each of the twenty-seven museums houses an object, a work of art or an oddity you’re not expecting. Ready to go on an adventure?
