  • The Museum is exposed, interesting but the guide eventually no longer to capture our attention. The items on sale in the shop are beautiful but very expensive. Too bad!

  • Amazing little museum with a good range of silk industry items on display and English translations explaining the silk making process. The highlight is that they maintain live silkworms and moths at every stage of development on display so you can watch them up close. It is a really effective way to see how they grow, spin their cocoons, pupate, etc. Especially good for the kids. There is also a craft table with scissors and glue for they to play, although don't try and do that when a guided tour is happening or your kids will get repeatedly and pointlessly "shhhh"ed by the curator.
  • Small museum in a small town. They sale products not cheap :(
  • Fun place to visit.
  • Beautiful SAINT HIPPOLYTE of the FORT Museum, accessible to people with reduced mobility. Located in the heart of the city, the museum traces the history of the silk in the Cévennes. A collection of machine tools of the silk industry as well as a farm (in season), a video documentary, a shop of ready to wear and memories await you. The staff is friendly and professional. Guided tours for groups booked. A must see!

  • Interesting tour but rates of entry a bit expensive € 6.5 per adult... to see the size of the Museum. However for children animations, collages, even the possibility to touch silk worms. Ah yes it is air conditioned!
