History Museum, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"On arriving at the museums park, we were quickly surprised by building towering up at the centre of the park. A truly grand residence awaited, opening its doors to us. The museum has just been comprehensively renovated. We moved from one room to the next, exploring the history of the town and the region in a range of ways. Objects, videos and photos were on display and enabled us to understand the town and its inhabitants. An entire room was dedicated to Le Corbusier. Children could also enjoy their own visit and set off at their own pace to discover the 4 floors of the museum. And the exhibitions were translated into English and German - an excellent surprise for the foreign friends who accompanied us."
