Musée des Arts Forains
L'histoire de la fête populaire

  Musée des Arts Forains. 53, avenue des Terroirs de France.

musée des arts forainsThis pretty museum is strange.  It tells the history of the fun fair, and the small popular plays through these plays and horse gears which made quiver the century well before the appearance of our electronic emotions.  The place is not opened to the public, except with the groups made up of at least 15 people and with the communities of companies.  Many attractions dating from the great time, end XIXth with the turning of the XXth century, have escaped from the demolition contractors and found here a refuge quite alive then. The goal is to make them function under the amused eye of the visitors. Lotteries, horse gears, wooden horses, spinning tops, old bicycles recall us that the play was itinerant and addressed itself to all the layers of the population.  The open bestiary called upon artists of talents to carve with veracity the animals of the carrousels.  English caricatures are beside Japanese billiards which it is possible to touch of the end of the fingers, objects are freely exhibited.
