Neighbourhood Activities

La Halle de la Machine

Large contemporary hall of 6,000 m² with its roof in the shape of aeroplane wings designed by the architect Patrick Arotcharen, this vast space is dedicated to street arts, combining invention and technology. Between shows and permanent exhibition, the visit to the Hall includes around 150 mechanical devices which offer constantly renewed enchantment.

Visitors can experience the birth of creations on site as well as boarding a machine. Some of these funny machines go to meet walkers and passers-by, including the famous Minotaur with 50 people on its back. In the same spirit, Place Marcel Bouilloux -Laffont (just opposite) offers an explosive merry-go-round!

You can buy a combined ticket online to visit La Halle de la Machine and L’Envol des Pionniers on the same day.
