Musee de l'Automate, Souillac

(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
The only museum of its kind in Europe, Musee de l'Automate offers a collection of automated and mechanical toys dating back to the 19th and 20th centuries. Workshops in Roullet-Decamps produced the vast majority of these fanciful items. Marvel at the toys automated by mechanical apparatuses, electronic components, and clock-like gears. Enjoy the variety of subjects, from a full jazz band from yesteryear to modern robots. Many of the pieces synchronize with interesting movements, sounds, and light effects that will spark your imagination.

  • A true moment of Enchantment that this visit to this Museum of automatons. It's a real fairyland than this show so many machines manufactured in the 19 and 20th century but also these mechanisms on the clocks. You find your child during this visit!

  • a true moment of wonder to taste without restraint, with children's eyes! but adults can discover treasures of technology... already applied in 1880(voire moins)... a 2nd visit is not excluded!

  • What a great place ,everyone will enjoy it no matter what there age.
  • Nice collection of automata which some are animated. You never see the mechanisms, it did y almost no explanations on the history of robots, it's a shame. Nice temporary exhibition on world music instruments.

  • Fermoso e encantador. Hai autómatas de máis de 100 anos funcionando. Divertido, educativo e histórico. Mola.
