What a great experience at this privately owned museum and I really admire the owner for keeping this history alive. You can even ride on a few of the carousels. That was a surprise. You must book ahead of time for specific date / time....More

I have wanted to visit this museum for a long time and is truly is cool... it just has a small collection. The art is beautiful, the games are fun/ funny, the carousels are splendid. I wish there had been more to see.

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
