  • My mom, sister and I visited in September 2019, hoping to learn more about our ancestors. Claudine was fabulous! We learned so much about the history of Modane, how our Italian ancestors came here...

  • Perplexed before my visit, I finally had a good time. Count between one and two hours of visit to read well. If you have any questions do not hesitate to consult the lady at the reception who knows what she is talking about. The welcome was extraordinary, full of explanations. That alone is worth a detour. A lot of photos, video report or text Dance floor and if you're lucky, music on the mechanical piano 🎵 The photos submitted do not reflect what you can feel inside. You get caught up in the story very quickly, so don't just look at the pictures on the internet. Live this moment on the spot. Count in August 2022, 4.50€ per person and free for children under 6 years old. Thank you to the person (the lady) who welcomed us that day.
  • Excellent museum retracing the history of Modane and its region, in particular Franco-Italian relations and the famous "frejus" tunnel. The setting is original, with mechanical pianos. We see that Modane was a great economic and commercial center, a real border town.
