  • Located in the majestic Granvelle Palace, in the centre of Besançon, this museum is made for those who want to learn more about watchmaking, flagship of Besançon. Very nice watches of all time allow us to better understand the evolution of the "capture" of the time by the man. The Tower also offers a panoramic view of Besançon, and allows us to discover the Foucault pendulum, a relief map of the city (representing it to 1720). We also visited the exhibition dedicated to Antoine de Granvelle, the purple Eminence who built this Palace.

  • Exciting exhibition on Granvelle family for now. Not to be missed to identify the social rise of a family grandfather at the service of the Emperor Charles v.

  • It is a very interesting and well Museum if you're downtown as the city of Besançon in a story very responsible at the level of watchmaking. To visit until the last level everything upstairs to enjoy the great view.

  • Nice place to see veteran clocks but go with a guide may need it if u don't know french!
  • It's almost a time travel walking around the museum. Really good collection. For international travelers there should be English captions. Don't miss the souvenir store in the ground floor.
  • Perfect
  • They close for lunch
