Specialty Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Gain a new appreciation for uncanny automation at Musee des Automates, a museum featuring about 250 automatic puppets, nearly all created in the site's workshop. Don't be alarmed when these puppets start moving--they are designed to. The owner of the museum creates each item in a workshop, which you can usually tour if you ask. Explore seven rooms of animated puppets and objects made of metal, wood, and paper dating from the 19th century. Put Musee des Automates on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Limoux route builder app.

  • A most unusual museum. For all who seek the out of the ordinary. A good video presentation of the history of automatons. We had the opportunity of chatting with an enigmatic French lady who is the brains behind most of the creations.
  • Amazing handcrafted exhibition. Fascinating. Would definitely recommend.
