Musée Paccard, Sevrier

3.8
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Sevrier
As one of the oldest bell manufacturers in the world, Musée Paccard rings true for visitors. Here they cast the bell of the Sacred Heart called "Savoyard," which Savoy residents claim as a symbol of the region. Casting bells is dirty work, and the building speaks to this, however the history of the bell makes for a surprisingly pleasant side trip.

  • We visited the Museum on Tuesday morning and we were offered to return Friday afternoon to visit the foundry. We did both and are very satisfied. We got 2 movies on the Foundry of the big Bell of peace located in the US. Everything is very interesting.

  • If you are passing in Sevrier, the Museum of bells Paccard is interesting to visit. Two options to visit, but I recommend the second: one museum or Museum + Foundry. Only downside, we visited during the holidays of the founders and we knew that once in the foundry workshop. I would have preferred that the foundry was not in operation before making the visit because we missed what we were here to see in the first place.
