About Les Machines De L'ile De Nantes , Nantes

If you are looking for innovative and unique tourist sites, you cannot give a miss to Les Machines de I’lle de Nantes. It is the quirkiest sight of Nantes, taking you to a journey to a future world. All thanks goes to the makers, Francois Delaroziere (La Machine) and Pierre Orefice (Manas association), who had such an innovative idea to re-create a warehouse of a former shipyard into a magnificent artistic park. A step into the park takes you to the ‘imaginary world’ of Jules Verne and ‘the mechanical world’ of Leonardo Di Vinci.

The park has 3 sights:

  • The Great Elephant – a mechanical elephant of 12meter high giving you a tour for 45 minutes.
  • The Marine Worlds Carousel – a huge carousel of 25 meter high, featuring 35 underwater moving creatures on three levels.

  • The most memorable place during my visit to Nantes. The place is easy to find and there is a bike station nearby. It's a fun place for both adult and children and a heaven for those who love machine! The most awesome thing is the giant elephant robot. It's slow but it can walk and we can ride on it!

  • This place is fantastic, the machines and the carousel are incredible our children (and adults) were completely in awe of everything, especially the elephant. The elephant itself is worth a trip to Nantes, it is absolutely amazing! The detail, mechanics and workmanship that has gone into the carousel's (the permanent one and a smaller mobile carousel) is staggering. Once they start moving, with the children (and adults in the big carousel) making the creatures and machines do different things it's magical. There were adults of all ages on the large carousel which has a floor that young children aren't allowed on. Their faces looked like they were transported back too their childhood with childish glints in their eyes. Our only minor down point was that the machines gallery exhibition itself is very small and only takes about twenty minutes or so to see everything. The demonstrations which would have made the visit a bit longer seemed only to be in French (we couldn't see anything regarding translations) so they were a bit lost on us. If you are visiting or anywhere near Nantes try to make some time to visit the machines! You won't regret it!

  • A great day out, huge working machines the elephant alone is about 50 feet high and walks about the ground's, you can ride on it! They are also building a mechanical tree where you can walk through the branches with animated creachers in the branches, all in all a good family day out any time of the year.

  • Let your imagination fly! For kids and grown-ups, everyone will enjoy. One of the most original shows I've seen.

  • A visit to Nantes would be incomplete without a visit to this outstanding attraction. The mechanical Elephant is a triumph of creative engineering and artistic design. But there is much more to discover in the Machines of the Isles attraction and design workspace. Inspired by Jules Verne and Leonardo di Vinci, the giant spider, heron and inch worm are a revelation to behold. Their latest creation is a massive mechanical Long-Ma Dragon.
