So you are invited to discover the weird, wonderful and strange machines that are mechanical toys and masterpieces, where you can make them come alive through an interactive system that allows you to push buttons to get each and everyone animated, just as they were designed to be, often with some very surprising results.
Here you will find that this museum in Paris has well over a hundred different automated items on display, many of them very old, yet they will no doubt be a delight to discover for anyone of any age.
Access to the Musee des Automates Museum
This museum in Paris is open on a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 2pm through to 7pm, however, at certain times of the year such as the spring school holidays, they will open daily.
The normal cost of entry is €6 per person and €5 for children aged between 3 and 12 and free to those under the age of three. But you can also purchase a combined ticket for the Musee des Automates and the Musee de la Magie and as of 2013, this is a cost of €12 per person or €9 for children aged between 3 and 12.
And located in the 4th Arrondissement of Paris near to the River Seine by the Ile Saint-Louis, there are different Metro stations within easy reach via lines 1, 4, 5 and 7, which are called the Saint-Paul stop, the Bastille stop and the Pont Marie stop, although the Sully - Morland stop is the closest. However, you can also reach these museums via bus on numbers 67, 69, 76 and 86.
But we would like to point out that upon entering the museum you have to negotiate stairs going down, and therefore, unfortunately, it is not accessible to the disabled or those with mobility difficulties.
