Musée Bargoin

Located in the heart of the city, Musée Bargoin is made up of two distinct exhibitions, one devoted to archeology and the other to textiles. The first presents an extensive collection of archaeological items from excavations carried out in the Clermont-Ferrand region. The second tells the story of world's textiles, from the 18th to the 21st century, and illustrates the passion of weavers, dressmakers and other cloth manufacturers.

Do & See

The city's major sights and historical beauties are connected by several walking paths that run through the two ancient town centres of Clermont and Montferrand. The whole area is home to architectural treasures, museums, castles and some of France’s richest Roman heritage. The region where the city lies is a wonderful site for outdoor activities and adventures, providing travellers with some incomparable walking-trails that twist and turn around the imposing Puy De Dôme volcano.
