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!
