Get On Set
An Expansive Park.
Discover a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, the artist and man.
Meet Charlie Chaplin, family man, in the Manoir; embark on a singular journey through the sets of his greatest films at our Hollywood-style Studio; take a peaceful walk in the gardens; and don't forget to round off your visit with a stopover at our Shops before heading to our cafe-restaurant, The Tramp.
The idea for an ambitious, large-scale museum dedicated to Charlie Chaplin and his life’s work came about in the year 2000, when Swiss architect Philippe Meylan and Quebecois curator, film buff and Chaplin aficionado Yves Durand first met. The project was brought to life by a dedicated group, made up of business people, artists and key local players, as well as teams of architects, engineers and designers, working together with the Chaplin Foundation.
