    Visit of 08/08/2017, hospitality is really great and the entries are cheap: 6.5 euros for an adult it's reasonable. The Museum is really well done, with plenty of games and activities for children, interactive, digital... After what the technique I'm not both agree if the visitor follows all the films and panels happen to identify the big ideas of the process but it takes patience... However missing the seats along the Museum in front of screens of video, for example. In conclusion: good idea to visit in rainy weather

    The Museum is interesting, but it is too short for what it costs. At the reception very nice giving you a few explanatory foleos of the history of the aluminum and as affection in the Valley in English, but then the entire Museum is in French.
