Yet, open guided tours provided all year around ,are scheduled on Saturday September 19 and Sunday 20, 2020

Accompanied by comedian guides, enjoy a 1h30-tour discovering one of the greatest collection of entertaining and show iteams, curiosities and carny art staged on the themes of cabinet of curiosities, Venice carnival, extraordinary gardens, and Belle Epoque-funfair.

Open on booking only, these guided tours cost €16 for adults, €8 for children from 4 to 11 years old, and free for children under 4. To take part, meet on the Musée des Arts Forains wesbite.

As for European Heritage Days 2020, we still have good news. Even though the Musée des Arts Forains does not open to the general public, it provides a privileged tour backstage, usually closed to visitors. This is the rare occasion to break the mysteries of this living-museum, a chance reserved to some happy few since the visit will be completed in groups of 15 people maximum. The tour suits children from 12 years old.
