  • The astronomical clock is visible outside. The visit is free without a schedule to follow.

  • Her wonderful work! Exposed inside a glass booth, we got a vision 360 ° on this beautiful clock and solar system! A jewel of physics! Amateur of physical or not see will be conquered, more explanatory video very well done. PS: try to be there at the time where it strikes the hours, it's amazing to see this whole mechanism to set off.
