More than a museum, a place to relax...

A probe into the origins of a tragic masterpiece, this is sure, but even more, and with the animated models, a glimpse at the great scenes from the novel...

And then, upstairs, with the animated windows, the occasion to relive with the children, this wide eyed wonder they show at Christmas in front of the shops windows...

Later, after the visit, the pleasure to take a rest in the park, listening the quiet sound of the river.

Maybe also the beginning of a visit in the borough and neighborhoods to discover the places described once by Flaubert, where his heroes lived, suffered, and died.

Cultural Center (open 1977).

(Private museum, association law 1901)

It gives to the borough its touristic repute.

Original museum for all, literary scholars, students, tourists and families,
From  18 months till 99 years.

From the entrance, at the ground floor:

The story of MADAME BOVARY by GUSTAVE FLAUBERT,
presented by 300 moving automatons.
Starting from the school: "We were in the study..." etc....

Passing through the wedding banquet, the agricultural show, to the death of EMMA and that of CHARLES.
Everything here is artisanal, from the mechanics to the paintings, and including the costumes, and has been realized by Michel Burgaud and his family.
You will pass by the life sized pharmacy of the famous JOUANNE son (the original character for HOMAIS), this is the original old dispensary of RY (now in the museum).
On the first floor, enjoy the exhibit of 200 automatons in action, in scenes from around the world: ALI-BABA, ESKIMOS, SPAIN, France with it FIRE BRIGADE...

Before leaving for the park, to sit quietly, to dream at the water edge, lets have a look in a room at some authentic documents where specialists and the curious will find confirmation of the parallel BOVARY-DELAMARE.

PLAN OF THE SITE

And, not to forget that the profession of the creator of this museum is clock and watch repairing:
Horlogerie-Bijouterie Burgaud (since 4 generations)
