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."
The museum is currently closed because of works.
It will be exceptionally partially opened from 10 June to 23 September.
Wednesday: 2-6 p.m.
Sunday: 2-6 p.m.
Other days: by appointement only (for groups)
Adults: CHF 5.00
Students and pensioners: CHF 3.00
Children (until 16): free entrance

- Opened at the end of 2002, the "new" St-Imier Museum is housed in the building of the Erguël Cultural Center, a fitting home for its richly varied collections focusing on natural and regional history, as well as the collections of military memorabilia, watchmakers' workbenches, lace-making and various items of ethnographic interest... Anyone with an inquisitive mind is sure to enjoy this fascinating miscellany!
