  • Great place to understand global industrial history
  • very interesting
  • Excellent collections of the industrial activity of the region. A wonder.
  • The Museum of Art and industry as such, is still more than 150 years of history. For a museum that's a lot, and as he never lost his vocation to present to all the Holy City can offer more beautiful, so much with such a past I was a little disappointed not being able to take advantage of exposure to more historical vocation. We're interested here many objects (of superb collections, really), but eventually enough little by Étienne city and history to the beautiful enclosure in which are located the exhibitions. I truly hope that the contribution of the collection of the Museum of the old Saint-Etienne will bring this dimension. So when I have guests from other French regions at home, I know for sure what their doing Museum discover to impress them!

  • I knew the Museum, with its remarkable collection of Ribbon. Where the visit became surprising a place that absolutely not interested became a superb visit time the collection of weapons is a must see. And even bicycles. I loved my visit.
