Three rooms to discover the Grand Chasseral region.

Located below the Saint-Martin Tower, the Museum of Saint-Imier is part of the historical heart of the town where it is located. Integrated into the Relais culturel d'Erguël, it is at the center of a socio-cultural pole. The institution offers three distinct spaces: two permanent ones - one dedicated to regional history, the other to the Jura troops - and a temporary one.

Permanent regional exhibition "In search of an identity"

Established between two mountains, the town of Saint-Imier has grown as a plural city at the crossroads between the Saint-Martin Tower, the Chasseral Park, the watchmaking industry and anarchism. This exhibition invites you to follow in the footsteps of Saint Imier. Through the centuries, the construction of the imerian identity is revealed.

Permanent interjurassic exhibition "Espace des troupes jurassiennes"

The Jura troops have always been a link between the geographical and political regions of the historical Jura. Put into perspective in its European, Swiss and regional contexts, this military history is revealed from the former Bishopric of Basel to the present day. The Espace des troupes jurassiennes is a unique concept in Switzerland in terms of the chronological scope of the subject it deals with. It is intended to be a reflection of the past that is accessible to a wide audience.
