When: Back to Calendar April 28, 2012 – September 30, 2012 (all-day)

THE EXHIBITION

The “Automates & Merveilles” exhibition is divided into three sections. Each museum explores one aspect of the life and times of the Jaquet-Droz family that is covered by its own collections. It will use one of the three humanoid automata preserved at the Musée d’art et d’histoire de Neuchâtel to introduce this aspect. Two of the automata will relocate from their home museum to partner museums for the occasion.
