  • I discovered the existence of the factory pins through a leaflet found on the rest area of Alençon. Passionate about needlework, I promised myself to come with a friend. And I was not disappointed! Exciting tour is a discovery. Impressive to discover that something as "simple" as one hand asks such a technicality. And Benjamin pins! What a personality! The welcome is friendly, the available workers, fine buildings, the staging of the "nice" course and the surrounding bucolic countryside to wish. In short a place to know and I think misunderstood. Why not a participation in the needle in party? Only downside: the price, anyway, especially if it comes many. I will continue to buy needles pins! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

  • A surprising visit, a real discovery, unexpected! Beautiful buildings and a tour of the workshops interesting and surprising, not to be missed, a pleasant welcome by a passionate young hostess and mastering his subject, thanks Melanie. Thanks also to the factory we enable this discovery, noted, however, the poverty of the signs from the Eagle to reach the factory. The departmental office of tourism really should bring a solution.

  • I've come to visit in July, and on the advice of a friend who worked at the Museum last year. It was she who taught me what was the factory pins. Being of Evreux, I to had never heard unfortunately. I loved the tour of the workshops, it remains my favorite part. All these old machines that still work perfectly well. The Museum is nice, maybe too much reading for me. I liked the little film about Benjamin Bohin. Which allows a break at the end of visit. The temporary exhibition were friendly but I spent it faster, I ran out of time. Small flat however on the price. I find it quite expensive. And thus less accessible to some people. Signage is also reviewing I think. Otherwise nice, clean place and pleasant. A drinks machine is installed is a good idea but maybe revise the corner where one can settle. Tables could be welcome. Last point: a pity that the communication of the manufacture pins does not go up to Evreux. I don't see any advertising for this place and that's a shame. If my friend had not worked, I won't can be never known this place.

  • Not to be missed! In addition to extraordinary exhibitions of textile works, combining meticulous and even conceptual contemporary ultra graphics, the visit of the plant itself allows to admire and see work very many machines of a century of age always perfectly maintained and always perfectly suited to the manufacture of needles of all kinds, all bathed in a delicious smell of hot oil, a return in time. The Museum is well designed, special mention to the room where we walk on a huge photographic landscape. We also discover with amazement the life and work of father, early modern, humanistic and progressive pins.
