A fabulous journey through the history of time and the Vallée de l'Arve.

Take a fascinating journey through the history of time measurement. Marvel at the conquest of precision and be amazed by large-scale working models of watch mechanisms, made circa 1880 by pupils at the Cluses School of Watchmaking.

Discover the technology on which the Vallée de l'Arve was built, from the first mechanical tools for watchmaking to a reconstruction of a 1930s precision-turning workshop, in full working order. Keeping a heritage and a skill alive, the Museum is open all year.
