In 1796 Antoine Favre made the first music box. Sainte-Croix has been recognised as the world capital for these wonderful inventions for over a century. The machines, which range from Vaucanson styles to contemporary designers, present a fantastic and poetic spectacle. The writer Pierrot comes to life and the acrobat performs tricks before your very eyes.
