Les Machines de l'Île

Recommended
Here in the heart of the former boiler-making workshops of the Chantiers de la Loire shipyards, you will venture into a world entirely imagined by François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice: gigantic machines such as the giant Heron Tree and the Marine Worlds' Carrousel are reminiscent of a universe that seems poised between Jules Vernes and Leonardo da Vinci. Climb up onto the elephant for a ride around part of the isle!
