Clockwork Museum

Interesting
Housed in the 18C Monts Castle, this museum contains collections showing the precision work of clockmakers. On the ground floor, in a period apartment, you can see some fine pendulums and an exhibition showing the development of the watch, from its origins to the digital age. Then there are automata, a history of time measurement and a diorama.
