Pataphony: a dream world where music comes to life

  • Guided tour and discovery

In Pataphony, any daily object can become a musical instrument and any visitor can be a musical artist and compose its very own symphony. This is a journey to a world unknown to most of us...

In Pataphony, music is everywhere

In this exceptional building, sounds and texture meet, visitors become, in turn, actor and musical genius.

Discover the Maison de la Pataphonie's instrumentarium: a unique environment with a patatropical jungle, an aquaplayful river, a cave found by Pierre Galet... Unexpected settings to make your eyes sparkles, sharpen your senses and make you tingle to make music.

Designed by the Max Vandervorst, proud of a wild imagination, this instrumentarium is open to all. The magic wand, of the pataphonic guide on-site will wake up the musical artist in you.
