  • Spent a couple of hours looking round this great old needle factory and watched all the machines still producing needles after 150 years.Fascinating.

  • Superb visit with not too long clear explanatory panels and detailed videos. The machines are impressively ingenious. The workers and technicians graciously answer all our questions to share their expertise. The reception is at the top, particular care has been taken with lighting and variety throughout the course. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Thanks to the whole team.
  • An original museum to do if you are in the region! The route is divided into several parts: the factory, the museum, the temporary exhibition and the shop at the end of the visit. The temporary exhibition did not seem successful to us. The scenography was not very clear. The factory staff was on leave during our visit, we could not see them in action but only through videos. But the people at the reception were really professional and took the time to answer all our questions.
