A trio of skills

What do guns, bikes and ribbons have in common? Tongue in cheek? All of them were flagship productions of Saint-Etienne and are the subject of a specific tour within this modern museum redesigned by Jean-Michel Wilmotte. There is no pretension of warmongering in the display of small arms from the national factory and from private manufacturers. The bicycle is presented in its technical but also social evolution. As for the ribbon, it refers to the silk and the weaving looms so present in the region. All year round except Monday, €6.50.
