Musée de la Mémoire des Murs

Created by Serge Ramond, an avid collector of graffiti, the musée de la Mémoire des murs (Memory of Walls Museum) houses over 3,000 mouldings of inscriptions and reliefs that evoke the daily lives of their authors.
These engraved or sculpted testimonies are like a 10,000-year “journey” from Prehistory to the present day.

Musée de la vénerie

You want to know more about this ancestral activity? Come and visit this very singular museum (but not suitable for sensitive people).

Installed in the beautiful buildings of the Priory Saint-Maurice de Senlis, the Musée de la Vénerie is an original establishment in Europe. Created at the beginning of the 20th century by the painter Charles Jean-Hallo, it houses an important collection relating to the art of hunting. In the atmosphere of a private residence, paintings such as those by François Desportes, painter of the royal hunts of Louis XIV, art objects such as the hunting outfits of the Princes of Condé, the Duke of Aumale and Empress Eugénie, blend with the attributes of the hunter to evoke the art and history of hunting.

Musée des Spahis

Musée de la Cartoucherie

The Cartoucherie factory is, even for those who have never worked there, a very strong point of the identity of Survilliers.
A few old workers and managers have been mobilized to preserve an accessible testimony on the know-how, the machines, the social model of this place representative of the industrial history…
Located near the factory, this very original place can be visited in the company of former workers who will tell you how to make cartridges, how to survive the fulminate without fulminating and how to design the appropriate machines for these activities.

Tour du guet

La tour du guet

A place to gain height! Saint-Martin-du-Tertre, the highest village of Île de France at 200 meters above sea level is nicknamed the “Balcon d’Île-de-France”. Its 23 m high Watch Tower, built in 1840 in the troubadour style, offers a must-see view of the region. There is also a museum nestled in this atypical setting where you will know everything about Chappe’s telegraph. In 1793, Claude Chappe and his brothers invented a communication system based on optical signals emitted from the top of one tower to another. At the top of these towers were articulated wooden arms capable of sending “coded” messages, in order to be able to communicate quickly in these troubled times of revolution and war .
