Interesting museum/Musée intéressant

An interesting museum, a must-see if you are visiting this part of France. I can only recommend to visit it with a guided tour. The guides are passionate and great story tellers. No doubt that you will learn plenty! The location itself is really pretty. Best to plan 2 to 3 hours to visit it. Enjoy!

Un musée intéressant, sa visite est incontournable si vous visiter cette région. La visite guidée que nous avons suivie fut excellente et passionnante. Vous y apprendrez beaucoup ! Le musée en lui-même est un beau bâtiment. Mieux vaut prévoir 2 à 3 heures. Allez- y !

Worth to see as it depicts times gone by
Jul 2018
For €7 you get a glimpse of the life of a worker in a factory which produced goods made from natural products such as bones, nacre, wood and ivory before the arrival of plastic which destroyed the industry. Goods include domino games, buttons, fans etc. The factory employed up to 15,000 people at some stage. Conditions were grim but products sought after.

Great Museum, great guides, many stories to tell about an amazing industrial adventure.. learn and see how dominos were made, learn and see how buttons were made, learn how a family led the industry and how passionate the workers were, sometimes working at incredible speed under very difficult conditions.. definitely worth the visit.

Artisanal history

A wonderful museum off the tourist track. Although you must walk with the french- speaking guide in order to see the machnery work, the museum will offer an english translation guide. When I visited there were local families who remembered their parents participating in this cottage industry. I enjoyed the artistry and crafts on display. There were children in the group and the guide made special effort to include them in the tour.

What can you make out of mother-of-pearl? This ingenious, highly popular museum shows how they did it in the old days, when highly skilled humans, not robots, took ivory, mother-of-pearl and bone and hand-and-machine crafted beautiful objects.
