  • If you're found of history, of Saint-Nectaire cheese or even of -light- geology this museum will fulfill your expectations! The guides are nice and always ready to explain. the visit ends with rare 3D pictures of the region in the 19th century. A must-seen in the region. The shop has also very nice local products. And finally, the village itself is worth to see, in the middle of the mountains. I loved it!
  • To see. Former habitat put troglodyte in value by private owners. A slide show of photos early 1900s. A result history. A guide to explain the manufacturing of the saint nectaire.

  • Visit exciting, quite accessible to children. We discover the construction of cave dwellings in the middle age, a tragic episode of local in the 18th century life, with memories of the beginning of the twentieth century in stereoscopic photos. A few meters, a farm with production of St Nectaire complete this enjoyable family outing.
