#2 of 21 in Museums in Loire
Industry melds into fine art at Musée d'Art et d'Industrie. Weaponry exhibits display both the beauty and brutality of industry. Textiles demonstrate the harmonization of function and artifice through fabrics and looms. Be sure to check out Da Vinci-like sculptures which show off both the mechanics and aesthetics of the bicycle.

    Before visiting this Museum, I was just convinced, loving little arms and bikes. And however, I enjoyed this museum featuring beautiful collections (some parts draw the eye). A few panels of explanatory and accessible. In the ribbons section is very nice (dare to pull the drawers to see the magnificent pieces). Very good reception and the guardian (ne) s room ready (e) s to enquire and with a smile. We recommend this Museum, which traces of Étienne industry. Allow at least 2 hours for the visit; also check their website and including the proposal of course (to see the important parts).

    Museum where you discover or rediscover Saint-Etienne heritage through its history and its knowledge to do... Cycling to arms through the trimmings, this museum is really to do.

    Excellent collections of the industrial activity of the region. A wonder.

    Hybrid Museum that did not choose between fine arts and Museum of society although it was amputated of its collections of art long ago. Little pedagogical concerns except for the ribbons. The collection of weapons is abundant, perhaps too.

    Small Sunday morning visit to family with children 4 to 7 years. Interesting and varied, the part cycle and textiles have particularly seduces us, accessible to children... More than firearms of course! We had no temporary exhibition provided the tour was complete.
