A museum to discover the different faces of Bugey and understand local life and activities: crafts, customs, famous people, wildlife, landscape…
At the gates of Lyon, Switzerland and Savoy, a few kilometers away from the vineyards, the Bugey-Valromey museum invites you to discover the different aspects of Bugey in the past and today.
Its collections and reconstructions spread out in a Renaissance house and its museography is an invitation to look at this mid-mountain society.
The wood, always being an important part of life in this area, is omnipresent in its collections: tools, machines, toys, a turner’s workshop… but also with one of the largest collections of turned wood artworks.
Bugey is also a territory of nature, the panorama from the museum is a beautiful example. From time immemorial, its landscapes have inspired artists and its valleys have inspired hikers.
A rich program combining quality and conviviality punctuates the season for all tastes and all ages.
