  • A superb Museum skimpy and with a didactic section. Demonstrations by former professionals of different cutlery trades.

  • We are witnessing a re-enactment of the various stages of manufacture to the century last of those famous knives. The Museum is richly endowed.

  • Small well run Museum and has the advantage of being free! The tour is in two parts: a free part with exhibitions of knives and explanatory signs and a screening room where you can watch a movie.

  • A gem of a museum. Be sure to watch the demonstrations.
  • Excellent, interactive museum with passionate guides! You can ask your questions, they will respond! Impressive collection. Too bad that there is no more information on counterfeits

  • Great Museum with a very nice and a beautiful demonstration of a working knowledge that is lost gradually.

  • 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.
