There is a lot to see in this museum, although there were only 3 sections open: Ribbon making - where you can see a demonstration of this happening using the old machines; The history of bicycles - really great collection as there was with the History of guns. There are bar codes that can be scanned to obtain information, as due to Covid 19 none of the interactive screens is working. The ticket lasts all day - so you can look around, go out and do something else and then return. The only problem is, the Ribbon demonstration and bar code information is all in French. You can however get booklets in English. Don't forget to wear a mask!

Saint Etienne is indeed the heart of cycling heritage. This museum’s bicycle collection, among the best in the world, reflects Saint Etienne’s almost century-long role as hub of all things cycling, from the first safeties of the 1880s through development of multi-speed drivetrains. The 50-plus bikes displayed, spanning from early 19th century to present day along with components and ephemera from mostly France and Italy, do a fine job of telling the bicycle story, from recreation to professional racing to everyday transportation. The museum’s biggest surprise perhaps is that it’s almost impossible to learn about on the web, so you’ll likely experience that sometimes elusive pleasure — a tranquil French museum with a world-class collection.

Three different floors each unique and very interesting. A history of Bicycles in the basement, Ribbons on the second floor and then pistols and other weapons on the top floor. Really enjoyed my time there and not busy!

Nice reception. The bicycle part of this museum is great,learned a lot. Loved the armor section. They have sample of the metal armor and its heavy. Loved that.
Lots and lots of guns which my Fiancé LOVED. Thought we would be in the gun section forever! Good news there is some fashion there too. Threading machines and such.

The building is beautiful and it is worth stopping in.

The IVCA Conference in Prague and the visit to the Museum of Industry was probably the best Cycling event of 2019

A lot of objects which showed the golden age of industrial sector in Saint Etienne.
This museum is modern with a lot of screens and rather interactive.
We took part to a guided tour during 1,5 hour for only 1 € extra per person. The guide told us many details.
If you read everything, you can easily stay more than 3 hours in this Museum.

This palace is surrounded by a park, it looks like a three floor house but has an underground basement where there is the bicycle museum so is bigger than what is perceived from outside. This palace is very well kept, services ( lift, cloakroom, toilets, directions, safety measures). Entrance cost acceptable. Many schools visits, beware.
The main three subjects : antique clothing looms, army, bicycles are all connected to St. Etienne industrial revolution and craft speciality. I appreciate all of them, there are also some contemporary masterpieces, it is a great place to learn history, refresh memory, understand the present.

What keeps me from giving this museum 5 stars is the fact that I expected more information on French industrialization, factories and the likes. Still, the collection of ribbons (along with the ribbon-making machines!), bicycles (mode of transport I absolutely adore) and objects used in the war was enough to keep one entertained. I actually had to withdraw from the last 2nd World War exhibit, since it was too much emotionally and I have to say, that is what really gets me in a museum.
