  • It is a museum to do at St Etienne. Various expos (ribbons, cycles, weapons and Angenieux objectives) and very well documented in a pleasant setting.

  • A museum that hides his game but where we become aware of the human genius: the size and the complexity of the machines loom, the accuracy and variety of firearms, the incredible amount of cycles and all of his inventions there related as the single wheel, the derailleur, the bike records of Mrs. LONGO... A good lesson in modesty to withdraw.

  • An exciting tour between ribbons, cycles and weapons; In addition, the muse is now free for students. Too bad that the visit lack of written explanations, apart from the part on the weapons, the functioning of the weaving machines and cycles is very/too little explained...
