Although slightly dated, this is an exceptional exhibit of works presented by "graduating" members from guilds as diverse as "Boulangerie" and upholstering!
This would be a great place to take the kids (if they speak French) on a wet afternoon, and there were plenty of kids visiting on the day I went and they were having fun with a treasure hunt. However, the displays are just not that interesting for an adult. I can't say that I found anything very interesting or... More
This is a great museum, very different and a history of the guilds and their strive for excellence in France. Well worth the visit
I passed by the display window for this museum several times before actually going in, and was so glad I finally did. I didn't allow quite enough time to see everything, so plan to go back with my adult daughter who enjoys off-beat museums.
Like nothing you'll see elsewhere; an interesting selection of models and "constructions" made of all different materials. If you're interested in the history of different crafts you'll like this.
Interesting craft museum, with a couple of pretty amazing pieces. Friendly staff. We were advised to allow at least an hour for the visit, but 20 min was fine with kids.
I've never seen a museum like this. Even if you don't read French it is well worth a visit to see the amazing range of hand-crafted exhibits. Wood carving, ironwork, patisserie, plaster work and many more examples of professional craftwork. Don't miss it!
This is a place to see what skilled workman can produce (miniature shoes for eg or model pagodas of sugar) but if you speak French, it also has a section on Free Masonry in France which is worth seeing. Otherwise you can take the children here on a rainy afternoon and let the exhibits speak for themselves.
