Museum Information

Musée de l’Automate (Automaton)

Souillac | 46

The museum is actually closed.

One of a kind in Europe, this nineteenth and twentieth-century collection of automatons and mechanical toys comes mainly from the Roullet-Decamps workshops.

It is run by an electronic brain and the show plays out in a sound and light performance that will transport young and old alike to a make believe world.
