A Steam-Powered Motorcycle?
One of the treasures that you will find in the Musée Mecanique is a steam powered motorcycle built in the year 1912. This relic, which could be the only one of its kind in the world, and that it still works, is valued at more than 250,000 dollars.
In the museum you will find music machines that work by turning a handle, automatons like the well-known "Zoltar", and slot machines where all the attractions work by inserting a coin or some recreational machines from the 70s and 80s.
Admission is free, so there is no reason not to go.
Every day: 10 am - 8 pm.
Price to use the machines: 1¢ - $1.
