Next to the Eiffel Tower, the "Globe Céleste" was one of the main attractions. It was a monumental heavenly globe of 45 meters in diameter, in which visitors could sit in a chair, while panoramas of the solar system were passed over. The ball was carried by 4 pillars, between which stairs and elevators allowed the visitors the ascent.

In the "Marerama", the building with the four corner towers to the left, visitors were simulated to be on the deck of a ship with a panorama of the large Mediterranean ports.

The exhibition pavilions located directly on the shore on the left were dedicated to navigation, trade and navigation.
