Some might say this place might not appeal to all. Yet, its creativity and the fact that it can only be visited every hour in groups with a guide make for a very entertaining visit. One a lot of families would enjoy with their kids after a stroll in a forest. A perfect sunday afternoon combo for sure!

I hesitated to select "poor" as we were unable to go no a tour. They only offer tours in French, even though we had seen otherwise. It looked very interesting, intriguing but sadly, not able to enjoy. It might be a great tour and it's our "fault" we don't speak French but we would have thought you could book an English language tour in advance if you wished. Feel free to visit, if you speak French, sorry for the poor rating but I do want to warn others that unless they understand French, no point in going.

This is a most unlikely find to stumble upon on a forest walk. You have to know it is there. It is piece of architectural sculpture using all kinds of materials to furnish the visitor/viewer/participant with a whole experience. It started in the brain of Jean Tinguely was shared and executed over many years with 4 or 5 other artists and whose reputation was looked after by the artist Niki de St Phalle. It is something to behold. The whole is to be looked at like a sculpture from a distance but then you can go inside it and experience it for yourself and encounter all kinds of art forms, perceptions and interpretations such as the mini theatre whose floor seems to move whilst you watch a hammer and a big glass vase play a dance of near catastrophe whilst you yourself are being spectated by statues viewing you from the side. A voir!

It had one eye one ear, a nose and a mouth through which canon balls pound through when it is active!! It is 22 metres high and incorporates a railway carriage some way up which was sadly used to transport jews To the concentration vams during world war 2. It was given to the nation by its creator, Jean Tingeley
