Museum of Automata



Wonder in store for the young and the not so young in this animated puppet centre in Falaise.

Come and discover this unique collection of over 300 automated puppets dating from the early 20th century to the 1960s, originally created to adorn the windows of leading Parisian department stores. In a setting reminiscent of the cobbled streets of Paris, puppets come to life before your very eyes, portraying scenes of day-to-life and other, more magical atmospheres... Among the automatons, masterpieces by artists such as Eiffel, Peynet and Dubout... A unique family day out in Normandy and a particularly special event during the Christmas holidays.
