    Site of the Machines of the Isle

    Dream-like factory.

    The Galerie des Machine is both a laboratory and an exhibition of fabulous dream-like machines activated by artist-machinists who get them going and tell their stories.
    The 40 tonne and 12 metre high elephant can take up to thirty passengers in its belly and on its back, and go off to discover the river and the city.

    The Atelier is the place for creating machines. Inside the nave, the machines are born into this dream factory, which the public discovers via a central walkway.
