Re-Birth Museum Space

Nestled at the foot of the ancestral castle which gave it birth and clinging to the mountainside, the town of Ferrette still seems to want to defend itself from a hypothetical invader ...

It is in the middle of paths and on medieval alleys protected by remarkable buildings, that our guide will accompany you on a fascinating journey through time.

During this "odyssey", you will rub shoulders with the Counts of Ferrette of course, but also the Emperors of Austria, King Louis XIV and even His Serene Highness Albert II of Monaco, whose links with Ferrette are recounted in the museum space. , a building dating from 1572, itself steeped in history!

History but also nature, since the city of the Counts, shelters an exceptional biodiversity characteristic of the Alsatian Jura massif of which it is the capital….

The museum space is located on the ground floor of the town hall of Ferrette, a building from 1572 listed in the inventory of historical monuments. It offers a permanent exhibition which traces in three languages ​​(French, German, English) the history of the city and the county. The opportunity to get to know the Habsburgs, the Mazarins and the Grimaldis, who left their mark on local history, through chronological panels and an audiovisual montage around the model of Ferrette. A touch screen allows you to view several videos on personalities who have marked Ferrette, such as Léon Lehmann, or to discover some reports on Ferrette.
