Clockmaking and Screwcutting Museum in Cluses

Discover the Museum, a real timepiece of the industrial and social history of the Arve's valley. Follow the evolution of the farmer-watchmakers' skills from the XVIIIth century until the advent of the screwcutting technology during the industrial revolution.

Original by its history and its collections, the museum is worth the trip. Instituted at the early XXth century by the National School of Clockmaking of Cluses, the museum used to have 2 vocations : to collect ancient time measure instruments (oldest piece is from 16e century) and to save the local industrial memories.

Located into the Espace Carpano & Pons, an old factory, the museum presents also the story of the National School of Clockmaking by presenting unique pieces of clockmaking made by the pupils in Cluses.

Theme guided tours, theatric visits, workshops, temporary exhibitions are organized all the year round and will make you discover the treasures of the museum.

Une médiatrice est présente en permanence pour répondre à toutes vos questions.
