Christmas in the Machines de l’île in Nantes

Posted by Nantes Tourism Office

From 16 to 30 December 2017. During the holidays, the atmosphere of Christmas settles down under the naves with christmas trees brought to light by the Machine Gallery and the Marine Worlds Carousel at nightfall, chestnuts, chocolates and mulled wines.

Ssshh… Long Ma’s sleeping in Nantes ! After having walked 20,000 kilometres, Nantes’ Great Elephant is taking a break until 9 February. When it returns to service, it will have a brand new hybrid engine, making it the first ever eco-responsible, mechanical pachyderm! During this pause, Long Ma, the dragon horse, also built by Compagnie La Machine, is in Nantes. She can be seen sleeping, like an incredible sculpture, at the warehouses, where you can visit until the 2018 February school holidays.
