Ecrins National Park Centre

This edifice is the happy architectural marriage between an 18C army hospital and a modern conservatory. Equally innovative, the centre, which focuses on nature, humankind and the park's animals, has been treated to a revamp that is much enjoyed for children. The "Ski en Briançonnais" exhibit charts a century of what was first a military means of transport before it became a fashionable sport.
