Swiss Watchmaking Museum Reopens

Here's a different attraction to see while in Switzerland: The Joux Valley Museum of Watchmaking is reopening today, offering a great peek into the detailed world of Swiss watchmaking.

The new museum features skills tables, which focus on the skills needed to perfect the interior and exterior of a watch; Ludotemps, which teaches budding watchmakers how to assemble a mechanical movement (which must then be cased-up); a workshop where students from Joux Valley Technical College (ETVJ) present their talent; and a 3D cinema along its two floors of exhibition space.

The Museum—called the Espace Horloger Vallée de Joux in French—is located at Grand-Rue 2 in Le Sentier. Visit www.espacehorloger.ch for more information.
