  • A very nice museum .
  • It's a small museum. If you go fast, you can see everything in ten minutes. But that would be an error. The masterpieces exposed there are really impressive if you take time to watch carefully, read the explanations and think that all was hand-made. Wooden frames, stone works, and metal works are my favorites. The design ingenious designs and crafting skills needed to accomplish the works is just out of reach for the common imagination. Also you can discover the tradition of "compagnonnage" in France.
  • Really nice museum, incredible works
  • Very interesting collection.
  • A not very big but very interesting Museum. Composed of two parts, of which the largest has a beautiful roof in the shape of hull of boat and this made the different building trades of companionship and many "masterpieces". The smallest traces the history of companionship, but a video loop and makes difficult the concentration required to playback of the panels. The place is noisy fast.
