this museum is perfectly located within 5 minutes from city center, in the middle of park which host in total 3 museum of La Chaux-de-Fonds. The collection is precious and perfectly enhanced by its presentation.

At the last part you can get detailed information about 20th... 更多

Amazing setting and the staff... 更多

Plan to spend a full day there. Equally rich in watches AND clocks. In addition the building (a purpose built underground cavern)... 更多
This is truly one of the finest museums I have ever visited and it felt so comfortable at any pace of looking and learning. I felt very comfortable being a English only speaker with the information presented too.
