Very rich collections about the history of the zenith of the industrial period of Saint Etienne.
The museography is rather modern: computers with pictures in free access, videos, huge models...
All texts are translated in English.
I strongly recommend the guided tour: you go down in a real reconstitution of a mine's gallery. The guide I have was extremely nice and expert about the topic.
Several parkings (free the sunday) surround the museum. You can also reach it by train and stop to "Clapier" train station which is in front of it.
The entrance is free every Sundays: a great especially if you have children!

Interesting how St.Etienne has held on to the hope that its team can be as great as it once was. This city LIVES football (or soccer). Nice place to spend an hour or so.

Really cool place expecially for youngers. Lot of knowledge about planets, beggining of solar system and some basics about sky (finding constellations, planets). Children were asked some questions during show and also were able to ask some after the show. One drawback is everything is in French with no translation So if you're not familiar with the subject can be frustrating.

A major gallery of contemporary art that includes works by Picasso and Warhol.
This is onlt a provisional reiew because the main galleries were under renovation and rehanging at the time of my visit so onlt one room of the permanent collection and a temporary one were available, thogh they were worth seein. The museum is to the north of St Etienne and has its own tram stop I noted that its title is actually of modern and contemporary art; too many references to modern art only relate to the about the first half of the 20th Century. Here the content goes up to the present.

A little run-down maybe, the trap of all private 'benevole' museums but amply made up for my the welcome. A knowledgable and friendly madame who answered our questions and freely imparted her extensive knowledge of the town. An interesting exhibition of the evolution of one of France's important towns and a birthplace of the industrial revolution set in a an old and interesting 'hotel particulier'. A visit is recommended to this tranquil and interesting little museum.

A poster in French and English describes what happened here on June 6, 1944. What a story these medieval Gothic church walls could tell. Our French guide who has a doctorate in World War II history added another line to the ending of the poster story. The German soldiers hiding in the confessional who sneezed from the dust swept up while the sexton was clearing up the night's debris were machine-gunned.

In a vast former armament plant, Cité du Design is an interesting mix of old and new, combining start-up incubator, design college and research center in 19th and 21st century buildings

Depuis l'installation du lieu en 2015, j'avais envie de découvrir ce musée de la magie et ce spectacle proposé les mercredis, samedis et dimanches à 15h30 ou aux groupes sur réservation en soirée avec repas !
J'y suis allé en famille un samedi après-midi d'hiver et j'ai retrouvé mon âme d'enfant !
Le lieu est enchanteur, les hôtes sont sympathiques, le spectacle bien rôdé et la magie fait le reste !
On y passe un très bon moment et on peut ensuite ou avant visiter le musée fait d'affiches, de vêtements, d'accessoires authentiques de personnes qui ont consacré leur vie à la magie ! C'est une chance de les avoir à Saint-Etienne !
