To access the impressive entrance of the Cité de l'Automobile you must cross a footbridge over the canal. This building was designed by Studio Milou in 2006, during the production of the new reception building and discovery. It symbolizes human creation and imagination, which is particularly fertile in field of automobile. So upon arrival you are faced with a spectacular door made of wood, glass and steel, which is covered with a surprising suspension of cars and animals.
Once past the entrance, you are presented with a screen showing film clips in which the car becomes the actor. You are then guided into the next room by the projections of the cars of the museum, moving at your pace.
