This collection is composed of three thematic rooms (each of about 2000 square meters): "The Venitians Lounges" (Les Salons Vénitiens), "The Marvelous Theater" (Le Théâtre du merveilleux) and "The Fairground Art Museum" (Le musée des Arts forains). Mainly used for companies events (product launching for instance), it's also possible to visit as simple guest (by reservation only).
Throughout the tour (or the event), the guests are invited to discover three universes:
- The Marvelous Theater: A glimpse to the biggest world fairs of the beginning of the 20th century (especially Paris'1900). An automatic orchestra (controlled by computer) or a "reatmosphering show" are likely to be seen here: thanks to 12 projectors, the walls are methamorphosing into Captain Nemo's Nautilus submarine, or a coral reef.
- The Venitians Lounges: In a typical venitian atmosphere, find in that room an Italian opera based show, performed by some automatons, or go for a ride on a gondola merry-go-round.
- The Fairground Art Museum: A special tribute to the 19th century funfair: ride a bicycle merry-go-round or play at a Parisian Waiter Race stand.

Famous quotes containing the words collection and/or permanent:
“All urbanization, pushed beyond a certain point, automatically becomes suburbanization.... Every great city is just a collection of suburbs. Its inhabitants ... do not live in their city; they merely inhabit it.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
“Most Americans are born drunk, and really require a little wine or beer to sober them. They have a sort of permanent intoxication from within, a sort of invisible champagne.... Americans do not need to drink to inspire them to do anything, though they do sometimes, I think, need a little for the deeper and more delicate purpose of teaching them how to do nothing.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
