Musée des Arts Forains: open exceptionally for the holidays

The musée des Arts Forains is a collection of 19th century fairground equipment, and a museum more in name than in practice. Housed in an old wine storage facility, it is a privately owned establishment which is used almost exclusively as an exotic backdrop to corporate events. Exceptionally though this Christmas, it will be open for two weeks, from December 20th to January 2nd.

The museum is organised in a similar manner to a fairground, but it is also part of a larger site known as the Pavillons de Bercy, which also includes two private streets and a salon venetien. Over the festive period, organisers also promise that it will all be dressed up in a suitable manner!
