Current exhibitions in Paris include two once-in-a-lifetime experiences that take you on journeys of a very different kind: on the world-famous Orient Express train, and to the fantasy world of Marvel Superheroes, both within easy reach of your hosts at Hotel de la Herse d'Or.
Travel to new dimensions
At Art Ludique, Paris's newest museum dedicated to the art of comic books, video games and animation, there's a unique opportunity to see the genius of the artists who created some of the most famous characters of Marvel Comics. From The Avengers to Iron Man, Captain America to Thor and Hulk to Spider-Man - these are characters that shaped the childhoods of our time. At Art Ludique, there's the chance to see some of the original art and sketches which created these characters.
A fantasy journey of another kind awaits at the Arab World Institute. A complete Orient Express train has been installed outside, complete with platform. This is just the beginning of 'Once Upon A Time The Orient Express', a show which takes in every aspect of the world's most famous and most luxurious train.
