Musée Paccard, Sevrier

(3.7/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Sevrier attractions like Musée Paccard can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • world leader in the manufacturing of bells of churches, simple chimes, bells of 20 tons (if if if), if you have the chance to associate to a visit of the Foundry Museum, you will be amazed by the knowledge of "founders", especially do not miss the two films on their exploits. You are entitled to a visit by a passionate, who will be happy to answer all your questions and will shared his passion. you will even receive a concerto by a chimes of bells, really surprising.

  • You quickly take a tour of this Museum, but the kids liked. We learned a lot of things. It's true that the film could be updated, it is a bit dated...

  • Friends campanophiles, this museum is for you. If you spend your holidays where a weekend to Annecy in Haute-Savoie, go see the Paccard Museum as well as the Foundry of the same name and if you want to buy you a souvenir, you buy a Bell.
