Les machines de l'île

Located in the heart of the city of Nantes, between two branches 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 this on the site of the city's former shipyards.
 
The objective is to rehabilitate the buildings symbolic of Nantes' industrial and maritime culture to accommodate an intergenerational public, such as the Grande Nef.

So we invite you to come and discover the majestic iron elephant. 12 meters high and weighing almost 50 tons of steel and wood, the imposing mechanical animal promises to amaze young and old alike! Embark on board to stroll around the island of Nantes and discover an unusual urban landscape.

Come and 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 give life to the strange creatures under the naves.

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

The rehabilitation of the island of Nantes does not stop there. The city continues to expand its universe with the project of a huge mechanical structure made of steel. In the heart of an extraordinary garden, we will be able to discover the Heron Tree, but for that, a little patience... The opening is planned for 2022.
