Peasant and Craft Museum

Housed in an old Jura farmstead, one of the only buildings of La Chaux-de-Fonds to have escaped the fire of 1794, this museum reconstructs the lifestyle of wealthy farmers in the 17C. On the first Sunday of each month, lace makers come to show off their intricate skills and expertise.
