  • A lot of interesting things about the history, production and the use of aluminum. All of this is related to the life of this valley. Texts to read, videos, illustrations, sound samples... The contributions of knowledge are varied and well made. There is something for everyone. I stayed there for 1 hour and 20 minutes (for reason of closure). I think it would take me 2 h 30 to enjoy everything. Another time... Easy to find, at the foot of the Church, small parking lot. Reasonable price (6 euros).
