The Festival du Merveilleux will return on December 26th!

At the museum

Our annual Festival du Merveilleux will return for the 9th year from December 26th 2018 to January 6th, 2019. During the Festival unlike the rest of the year, the museum will open without guided tours nor prior booking required!

12 days of wonder and entertainment await you in this 2018 edition dedicated to photography.
Over the Christmas holidays, the Musée des Arts Forains will be transformed into a vast photo studio, paying homage to the 19th century photo booths. Forget about traditional holiday card photos ; transform yourselves into cancan dancers, drive a 1930’s car or reach for the moon thanks to the enchanting photo backgrounds created especially for the Festival!

Take a picture and share it with the world!

Through the years the Festival du Merveilleux has become an obligatory outing for the festive season. It is also an outstanding occasion to discover the Pavillons de Bercy – Musée des Arts Forains by wandering through its unique collection and enjoying live shows and performances.
