    The museum displays various animated scenes-scenes from fairy tales, novels, operas. At the beginning of the exposition shows how operates one of the dolls. The Museum will be interesting for children. Price for the ticket is too big for such a small museum, which can be bypassed for 15-20 min.

    The children enjoyed this very attractive Museum upon entry. An investigation with the key surprise held them a little longer in the Museum. The scenes are beautiful and full of details but robots aren't nice they are antiquated and the Museum is very small. The windows on the outside have extended a bit right now...

    I'm not a huge fan of robots, but for once I loved! I Museum is not very big but the representations are extra! And the details... The Lady of the Museum welcomed us and explained to us their work. I admire in front of this art which still nowadays amazed many of small children in front of the Christmas Windows.

    If you look at what limited resources this is set up and what a scene it is to work for Titans to build, this is pretty impressive. And with a beautiful foreign key by the jewels of Vermeer.

    Very nice little Museum to visit by the young and old. In addition to learn about robots, we learned a lot about Lyon and its history.
