    A museographic space presents the heart of the Déôme valley through a permanent exhibition: a film on its industrial wealth, a room of current know-how and its natural heritage.

    Upstairs, from March to October, in the 18th century flats, is a space entirely dedicated to temporary exhibitions. During this period, the exhibitions change every month: paintings, sculptures, photos and drawings are on show.

    Finally, the Espace Louis Bancel features a large collection of sculptures (bronze, marble, onyx), sketches, pencil, pen and charcoal drawings under a magnificent fern ceiling in the Forézien style. The space is open in July and August from Wednesday to Sunday from 2pm to 6pm and for the Heritage Days in September.
