Museum of St-Imier

"The town of St-Imier is home to a museum whose variety makes it very interesting. Natural science, numismatics, watch- and clock-making, lace-making and other fine arts – everyone is sure to find their favorite subjects here. My choice was lace: superb work that demands patience and exceptional skill, carried out years ago by women with magic fingers. The lace-bobbin is hardly in use nowadays – another art that is becoming lost."
