Revery and magic for the young and the not so young

And it’s all waiting for you right here, in the Sully Valley! At the Circus and Illusion Museum (the first of its kind in France), everything is possible… A fabulous adventure awaits the whole family! First of all, you will find one of the largest ever galleries of accessories, costumes, scale-models and equipment of all sorts, that once belonged to the greatest names in circus performance.

So, let us enter the clowns’ and the magicians’ ring, and revel in their enchanting world over a circus and magic show. Big cats, drums, acrobats… a unique journey from dream to reality. And don’t forget that, in this circus, the spectators are also part of the show! They listen, they admire, but most importantly, they have lots of fun!

As you make your way through your museum tour, you will come across all sorts of magical accessories: giant screens, lighting effects, optical effects, wild cat cage… and you’ll even cross an ultra high tightrope!

Total immersion over an awe-inspiring experience. So come along, and simply let yourself be bowled over, in Dampierre-en-Burly !
