Machine of the isle of Nantes

Situated in the heart of the city of Nantes, between 2 arms of the Loire, the Île de Nantes is full of secrets and wonders.

Les machines de l'île is an artistic project inspired by the "invented worlds" of Jules Verne, the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci and the industrial history of Nantes. All on the site of the city's former shipyards.
 
The aim is to rehabilitate buildings that are symbolic of Nantes' industrial and maritime culture to welcome visitors from all generations, such as the Grande Nef.

We invite you to come and discover the magical iron elephant. At 12 metres high and weighing almost 50 tonnes of steel and wood, this imposing mechanical animal promises to amaze young and old alike! Climb aboard for a ride around the Ile de Nantes and discover an unusual urban landscape.

Lose yourself in the Galerie des Machines, a veritable laboratory where the machines built in the workshop are tested. The visit is punctuated by the interventions of the machinists who bring to life the strange creatures under the naves.

Let yourself be carried away by the sublime Marine Worlds carousel, an imposing structure 25 metres high on 3 levels, where you will fly among marine monsters such as giant crabs, squids, exploration machines...
