A history, a knowledge and a tradition
Chapuis-Comoy & Cie, pipe maker since 1825, opened early 2016 a museum and factory shop in Saint-Claude area in the French Jura Mountain. You'll discover a craftsmanship that has hardly changed in almost two centuries, through fair and precise gestures and skills presented with a film shot in the workshops, as well as through an exhibition and a valuable collection of old pipes and machinery preserved in the company.
A must visit in a place that deftly mixes tradition and modernity and which tells the story of an iconic industry of the Jura.
Free entry. Open all year long from Monday to Saturday, 10am - 7pm.
An ample parking can accommodate buses and camping-cars. The museum is also accessible to people with reduced mobility.
