Musée Patamécanique is, perhaps covertly, inspired by these ancient phantom chambers along with many of the techniques that were used to create them.

 

Not unlike Robertson's choice of an abandoned abby, Le Musée is housed in a small gothic chapel located on the grounds of a modest historic estate in the seaside town of Bristol, Rhode Island.

 

Like Robertson's Phantasmagoria Musée Patamécanique is a highly curated sensorial experience available to a limited number of guests and open only after dark.

Where Le Musée differs from the Phantasmagoria of times past is that instead of devising an atmosphere to mislead and frighten visitors - these environs are designed to manifest a playful if not uncanny experience intended to spark Pataphysical thinking89.
