Explore the environment of La Chaux-de-Fonds residents of yesterday in a 19th century villa.

An urban museum literally designed as a walkway between past and present. The permanent collection takes a combined chronological and thematic approach, focusing on the men and women who made (and make) this city the capital of watchmaking. One entire room is devoted to Le Corbusier.
