The Pavillon de Manse, built in 1678, is also known as the Moulin des Princes. It houses the Prince de Condé's "Machine des Grandes Eaux" and the Duc d'Aumale's hydraulic machinery.

Admire the pumping machine used to pump spring water from a well and store it in a reservoir before distributing it to the fountains, cascades and water jets that adorned the princely garden of the "Grandes Eaux".

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

Watch the ballet of the Duc d'Aumale's machines and listen to the song of the water as it flows through the rooms. Their purpose was to supply the town of Chantilly with drinking water.
