At the heart of the Bercy neighbourhood in Paris, ancient wine warehouses built by Gustave Eiffel's apprentice host thousands objects, among them ancient fairground artefacts, theatre and music-hall objects and other curiosities. They were brought together and staged by Jean-Paul Favand who considers them all as actors.

This lively museum designed for events can be adapted to any private events, meetings or receptions. It can also be visited all year long through guided tours.

The Musée des Arts Forains stands between cultural heritage and entertainment, where touching the objects and trying the ride is possible to enhance conviviality and daydream.
