The Pavillon de Manse built in 1678 is also called Moulin des Princes. It houses the Great Waters Machine of the princes and the hydraulic machines of the Duke of Aumale.

Admire the Manse machine (named after the hydraulic engineer Jacques de Manse) which was used to raise spring water from a well to a reservoir to distribute it to the fountains, waterfalls and water jets that adorned the princely garden "Great Waters".

This exceptional machine was reconstructed by the Pavillon Jacques de Manse association, which now manages the premises.

Watch the Duc d'Aumale's ballet of machines and listen to the song of the water flowing through the rooms. Their function was to supply drinking water to the town of Chantilly.

End with the Duke's laundry, one of the most modern for the end of the 19th century!

A leap in time, a visit to an unknown industrial heritage, playful, accessible to all and fun with experiments to carry out to understand everything about the operation of the Mill.
