  • It is a museum on scale models, there are small planes, small cars, small boats, it was a beautiful visit made by enthusiasts who know their subject very well  more »
  • This pair of museums is a hidden gem in La Rochelle. The first museum is all about moving models and the other is all about moving models or transport. This is certainly a place to go on a rainy day.....  more »
  • A collection of 1800-1930 Automatons - delightfully creepy and sometimes rather racist, but still a fun way to kill an hour.
  • Fantastic variety of fascinating models. Great for kids of all ages.
