The Universe Of The Scrap Poet: An Unusual Stroll In Morbihan.

If you are looking for a unique visit idea during your vacation in Morbihan, come and discover the world of the poet scrap metal artist! This fantastic world is filled with whimsical constructions, mobile sculptures, and characters born from the imagination of Robert Coudray.

An artist with a fertile imagination.

"The Universe of the Scrap Poet" is a fantastic world straight out of the imagination of Robert Coudray.

For over 25 years, this artist has been building a fairy-tale and unique universe from various found objects and simple pieces of scrap metal! As a true expert in recycling, he uses everything he can find, including pieces of metal or glass, to create unusual contraptions and animated sculptures.

It seems that all he needs is a few nails and two or three gears to bring a character or fascinating machines to life, which he gladly describes as "dream-making machines".

A world imbued with poetry.

Although it is often described as an open-air museum, the Universe of the Scrap Metal Poet is above all a fantastic world, populated by strange characters and turbulent objects.

No less than 80 machines, each more surprising than the next, provoke astonishment and wonder from visitors. In this maze with offbeat humor, the sculptures are noisy and the objects mischievous.

You should allow 2 hours for a visit to immerse yourself in the magic of these places and discover all the surprises. We won't reveal them all to you so as not to spoil the pleasure of discovery, but know that in this poetic universe you will encounter automatons and musical fountains...

A visit for the whole family.

The Universe of the Scrap Poet is a wonderful world where both young and old can freely wander.

This slightly crazy place, created by a single man like the Ideal Palace of Facteur Cheval in Drôme, will delight the youngest who can give free rein to their imagination and wandering dreams.

The creator of this phantasmagorical universe is a big child who describes himself as a graduate of the School of Truancy. Children are therefore welcome in his slightly eccentric kingdom.
