Musée Patamécanique Guest Agreement and Waiver/Release of Liability

PART 1 - Musée Patamécanique Guest Agreement - Musée Patamécanique only works if the mystery is left intact so every guest MUST help us to keep the location of our venue a secret. I, the undersigned, hereby agree that I will keep all Musée Patamécanique Material strictly confidential. In particular, I will not publically disclose the location of Musée Patamécanique by any means including taking any photographs recording video or making other recordings during my Musée Patamécanique tour. I also agree to return all tour related materials such as maps and equipment to Musée Patamécanique at the end of my tour. I understand that the provisions of this Guest Agreement will continue indefinitely.
