Absolutely brilliant and a MUST SEE. We really found it inspiring. We watch the video and it is a must see. English subtitles. The creations are wacky but individual and all working. Watch September since it only opens at 2pm to 5pm at some point...More

What a surprise this was. We went with the grandparents, the 7 year old and a teenage and we all loved it! There are traditional wooden games to play, machines to activate and watch, a movie to see, buildings to sit in and a step...More

Extremely glad we visited. Lots of mechanical sculptures operated by a button push, mostly powered through solar power. You can either just enjoy the moving sculptures or try to figure out how the moving parts interact and work. The buildings are charmingly bizarre giving impressions...More

This was the unexpected hit of our holiday. Initially it doesn't look much but as soon as you set eyes on the flying machine over the entrance you know you're in for something different. Our grandsons, 8, 6, 5 and 2, thought this was brilliant...More

I went here with my family (wife, and daughter (9) and son (6)). All I knew at the outset was that the founder, Robert Coudray, made things out of recycled materials. What we discovered was a wide range of fantastical machines (often doing nothing useful),...More

For some reason this place just works, it could easily be rubbish, but it isn't. One man has created hundreds of quirky objects, sculptures, buildings and machines, and lumped them all together in a field in the middle of nowhere. The kids were enthralled as...More

Fully support previous reviews. Definitely worth a visit. Fascinating and unique. The little film explains it all. Loved the interactive machines and especially the old fashioned games. The pond was so packed full of frogs and really noisy, I thought it was an animatronic. Fascinating....More

As with most of our trips to France, we always check out local, good attractions. This was earmarked very early on as a "Must see!". We weren't disappointed. From working models made from junk, to the finer mechanised ones, we were treated to a real...More
