  • I was really excited to see a museum for automatons as I generally find them absolutely fascinating mechanically and impressive and/or beautiful. However this is not the case at all with the ones here...  more »
  • In the old Lyon, break for children: home, booklets for different ages, and short time of visit. Historical and cultural scenes... it grows without realizing it, without forgetting the explanation of the creation of the scenes.

  • small very "local" Museum in an old district of Lyon: magnificent afternoon for our little ones with a treasure hunt; very nice collection of automatons that fascinate young and old. a little-known Museum to the public, but to discover.
