The Manse Pavilion houses the machine of the princes and hydraulic machines of the Duke of Aumale.

Le Moulin des Princes : Built in 1678, the Manse machine (hydraulic engineer named Jacques de Manse) supply water to large water gardens, (fountains, waterfalls) of the princes. This exceptional machine was restored by the Association Pavillon Jacques de Manse, which now manages the site.

The machines of the Duke of Aumale : Much more recent, were intended to supply drinking water to the city of Chantilly. An ultra-modern laundry in the late 19th century completes the tour.

 A leap in time, a visit to a little-known industrial heritage; accessible, playful, fun with the experiments conducted to understand the operation of any mill.
