Petit Futé's opinion on MUSEUM OF AUTOMATONS AND SCALE MODELS

Plate millesim 2022

Located near the Media Center and just two steps away from a beautiful oceanic walk, these museums are a pretty stop. If you arrive from the city, you need to take your car! Choose the smuggler who will take you up to here in a moment. The Automates Museum, first of its kind in France and opened since 1984, has some prestigious pieces. It offers the joy of watching a collection of ancient figurines from all over Europe. The research has been thorough: sales rooms, antique dealers, granaries, department stores… the result is up to the height, with automates dating back to the nineteenth century and those commercials of the 1950 s, but also historical reconstructions like this district of Montmartre in the early twentieth century, with its shops and windows. The Museum of Reduced Models, nestled right next door, also offers a trip to childhood in the small world of imaginary. The visit is more classical and allows you to admire, among other things, models of boats facing in a naval battle or referring to the Great Discoveries and of course railway circuits.

on se laisse prendre par la magie

Retour en enfance
Ce très beau musée, situé près de la médiathèque, nous replonge en enfance avec ces nombreux automates de tous ages! Visite à faire en famille pour le plus grand plaisir des grands et des petits!

De très beau modèle d'automate à voir. Cependant, le mussée est mal situé et loin du centre ville.

Petit musée très sympathique. Des automates de toutes sortes sont exposés. Ce sont de véritables chefs d'oeuvres car ils ont des détails très précis.
Sinon il y a la reproduction de Paris en miniature avec le fameux moulin rouge, le métro, les rues pavés etc. En tout cas super musée à faire en famille.

Pas franchement réjouissant. Les enfants risquent d'être un peu déçu et les adultes (sauf passionnés) devraient passer leur chemin. Toujours bon à prendre par jours de pluie.
