« Enter a world of marvels, and let your inner-child awaken while on ancient rides » Jean Paul Favand


Embark on an unforgettable journey through our different areas. The golden rule for this immersive visit is to keep your eyes wide open while guided by our comedians. This enchanting museum will thrill both the young and the young at heart with its fairground paraphernalia and mechanised performances. One of the most memorable experiences during the tour is to ride on centenary attractions and cycle on the bicycle merry-go-round, exactly as our great-grandparents could have done in 1897.


Escape the tourist mayhem as you discover the hidden face of Paris. This unusual visit is an original outing idea and fun for the whole family. You will share a convivial moment with your friends or family. As you walk through the different rooms, you will learn the distinctions between a French and a German wooden horse, discover what the first MP3 player in the 19th century looked like, and how the Bercy district became the cellar of Paris. There is no age limit to come here: this site is dedicated to the child that lives within each and every one of us.

Most of the tours are conducted in French but we provide a handout in English for our English-speaking visitors. We schedule tours in English during the summer.
