  • The present guide that day was particularly interesting. Short video to showcase the cutlery very well done.

  • A gem of a museum. Be sure to watch the demonstrations.
  • There are very beautiful objects in the Museum. Demonstrations are interesting. You must also visit the Valley of the spinning wheels. The visit of the last spinning wheel in function is very interesting. It should nevertheless conduct some maintenance of the building work although it must of course keep the authentic nature of the place.

  • Museum to visit to understand and soak up the history of Thiers and his cutlery. Attention, the Museum is in three sites separated (single ticket for all three sites, that can be done over several days)

  • The Museum is nice. but we found it best is the visit of a spinning wheel still in operation. It's really there, we can realize the difficulty of this job at this time. In addition, the ride is in a beautiful location, calm and freshness. The price is more than OK because it's 3 museums (Museum history of the Thiers cutlery Museum 2 expo of knives and demonstration) and 3 with the visit of the impeller). To have a good time at the expense, I recommend!

  • Museum which traces the history of the knife perfectly in Thiers, and plunges us beautifully in the atmosphere of the manufacture of the past. The crafts which ends the visit with explanations and demonstrations of manufacturing is an enthusiast, and his contact is very rewarding. Don't miss it under any pretext, the history of this work has begun centuries ago, but is still well and truly alive!
