The Festival du Merveilleux - discover the Musée des Arts Forains
Published on 20 January 2019 in Exhibitions & Museums
Unusual and captivating, the Museum of Fairground Arts is perfectly associated with the spirit of Christmas. Magical rides and old attractions, simple joys and childish wonders all plunge you into an enchanting world of sparkling festive lights and activities. Ideal for an outing on your own, with friends, or, naturally, with your family.
The Museum of Fairground Arts during the Festival of Wonders
The Museum of Fairground Arts, with its unique collection dedicated to rides, attractions and the world of entertainment, is absolutely unique. There are no dusty galleries and boring showcases. Here, you wander along indoor and outdoor paths to reach carousels with wooden horses, sideshow attractions and more. Normally, visits to the museum are by reservation only so it's essential that you catch the Festival of Wonders when the museum will open its doors from December 26th onwards.
At the heart of the magic
The Festival du Merveilleux makes the name "Museum" of Fairground Arts something of a lie. Nothing is static at this must-see event. On the contrary, you’re invited to enjoy a parade of exciting features, each more colourful than the next. Storytellers lead to jugglers, acrobats give way to automated ballerinas and optical illusions. A magical wonderland where there is always something happening, the Festival du Merveilleux is a magnificent, poetic carnival that will make you forget all about the world outside.
The members of Les Plumes team all have addresses and events to share in their quest to make your Parisian Christmas unforgettable. All agree, however, that the magical Festival du Merveilleux at the Musée des Arts Forains is exceptional. Trust them, they know what they're talking about!
