  • A gem of a museum. Be sure to watch the demonstrations.
  • Very interesting to know the history of the production of knives in Thiers. How this industry is implemented and how we worked and allowing the city to be a must. The Cutlers are working within the Museum to explain and show the working methods. Only downside, I then loved a little more explanation on the most modern methods.

  • Very nice Museum presenting the Thiers cutlery and its history. Some animations and coloring pages for the kids and other works of art to see (tables, old games...)

  • 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.
