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. Plan to visit Musee de l'Automate during your Souillac vacation using our convenient Souillac family vacation planner.

  • 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!

  • Many controllers. Don't miss the scene with characters referring to Dubout. Too bad that is not accepted the education pass.

  • 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.
