  • Museum that chronicles all industries of the century at ST Etienne last: trimmings, textile, weapon, bike in a beautiful old building perfectly renovated must absolutely go and even go back because there are also temporary exhibitions not to be missed

  • Museum certainly a bit expensive at the entry, but the exhibition of the collections reflects the local past and the staff is always ready to answer questions from visitors. I recommend it.

  • This Museum takes industries which have highlighted Saint Etienne! C is a museum where I went when my children were young because he proposed very interesting workshops by age. The building is gorgeous. The jacquards are still functioning and l can be following day a demonstration by a nice retired passementiers which transport you to another time that n is not so distant. Cycles, arms everything is represented. Do and redo!

  • 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.
