Museu dels Autòmats del Tibidabo

Museu dels Autòmats del Tibidabo

The Museu dels Autòmats, housed in an old theatre built in 1909, showcases a collection of automata from around the world.

This curious museum in the Tibidabo Amusement Park features examples of automata spanning the late 19th to the early 20th centuries, as well as the latest acquisition: the "Gaüs Brothers" or "World Balancing Act", a finalist in the automata competition at the 2005 Expo held in Aichi, Japan.

The museum also features coin-operated figures that were a common sight in fairgrounds throughout Europe, as well as vintage mechanical games and toys which were used to keep children entertained. The museum collections are considered to be among the best in the world, particularly due to the fact that they are in such good repair.
