History of Les Pavillons de Bercy – Musée des Arts Forains
Les Pavillons de Bercy – Musée des Arts Forains is a place of culture that holds a museum at the heart of the Bercy neighbourhood in Paris. It comprises several ancient wine warehouses built by Gustave Eiffel’s apprentice and hosts Europe’s largest collection of performing arts objects, among them ancient fairground artefacts, theatre and music-hall objects and other curiosities. They were brought together and staged by Jean-Paul Favand who considers them all as actors.
The Musée des Arts Forains stands between cultural heritage and entertainment, where touching the objects and trying the rides are possible to enhance conviviality and daydream.
Food & Beverages
Food and drinks will be available both in the event rooms and in the outdoor gardens. Buffets and live cooking stations will cater to your every need and a variety of delicious food will be offered.
