Jobin Living Museum

Interesting
Founded in 1835, the Jobin workshop continues to uphold the local tradition of woodcarving. Visitors can roam freely and watch the craftsmen working, by hand or on machines, in a light and modern complex. Upstairs, a small museum is home to musical boxes, carved wooden animals, miniature chalets and kitchen utensils that have forged the reputation of the workshop as well as the town. An on-site shop sells part of the workshop's production, including antiques.
