  • It was raining and we stopped for lack of better in this Museum"and there, a fantastic discovery. It is the collection of a passion for clocks with one side mischievous. All forms, old or more recent, the cuckoos... An incredible variety. Well highlighted. Real discoveries as the ancestor of the vinyl, made from a very thin metal disk pierced circularly to by car which in turn activates a resonance Chamber. Unheard. In short, a Museum next door we can go wrong. Time of visit: about less than an hour and open for lunch.
