  • I recommend the tour exciting and free of this museum. Animation for children expected. Very beautiful places

  • We were with our kids (ages 6 and 8) and honestly, I didn't think we would stay as much (around 1 h 30 without a guide, by ourselves). We were in a period of breeding with observable silkworms at different times in their life cycle. Suddenly, the children really understand the process. they can sit on benches and watch. Then, then, different machines are presented. For children, go see the movie before so that they better understand what we do cocoons (even if it is very old!). Different outfits are exposed: pure wonders! Then at the end, children can complete a questionnaire and make collage/cutting on the cycle of the worms in silk (sheets given to hospitality, our arrival). It is a wonderful initiative that allows the children to finish on a good note: they have a table available (scissors, glue, colored pencils). Ours are well taken at the game! There is also a small box with worms in silk and bombyx (the only ones that can be touched), but here, there were less than brave!

  • Well done Museum with many machines of the past era, very instructive. A documentary film in 1939 completed the exhibition. I found it very interesting, takes about 20 minutes and it is worth to look at him. In addition, it has live silkworms in various stages of development. It takes about 1-1.5 hours to see everything. Entrance fee is very reasonable. €5.5 per adult.

  • Fun place to visit.
  • Very nice Museum to visit! Very competent Guide, dynamic, precise she make us share his passion. I was far from imagining such a journey of the silkworms and the trades that relate. Bravo and thank you.

  • having visited this very interesting Museum three years ago, I am surprised and shocked that information for me essential accessibility disabled is not indicated, the places are already not many...! Why invest in facilities not to mention them, curious way to develop tourism...!
