Enter the vast glass vessel on the Moselle Island and contemplate its works of art. You will dream in the Gallo-Roman pantheon full of hybrid creatures, you will gaze at the classical landscapes and guess when the painter captured the light, you will be intrigued by the contemporary works. On the occasion of the 25th birthday of its renovation, the regional museum created a new permanent exhibition for its collections “Beaux-Arts” (fine arts). This large-scale intervention deeply changes the visit. It allows the visitors to admire nearly 200 works progressing from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. The surface is now 900 m², i.e. twice the size of the surface since the museum reopened in 1992. This new presentation underlines the tremendous richness of the fine arts collection, from its paintings, to its sculptures or even its craft objects. The works of major artists like Rembrandt, de La Tour, van Goyen, Pannini, Claude Gellée, Furini, Vlaminck, etc. are shown. Finally, more than 110 works are now brought to light for the public after being hidden in storage for years for important restorations. These will be nice surprises, even for regular visitors. The mediation has been renewed for the occasion, allowing everyone to appropriate the works through different devices. Supervised guided tours are available for groups on reservation. Audio guides are also available (French, English and German) to guide you through the discovery of the museum. Closed on Tuesdays and Sunday mornings as well as on the 1st of May and 1st of November. Wednesday: By reservation for groups

The Battant ecomuseum is a journey into the industrial past, the techniques and know-how, but also and above all, the life of men in the last century. Discover the saga of a site that is over 150 years old with its hydroelectric power station, sawmill and mechanical workshop, still operational! Take a guided tour through the past at the gateway to the Vosges with one of the oldest industrial sites in the area of Charmes, which was the last one to cease operations. The Battant site takes its name from the activity of the drapers, which first trace can be found in 1580, then later by the tanners who used to go to the canal to beat* cloths and skins. For 2 hours, a passionate guide will take you through the heart of the Battant and its origins which are linked to the canal: the turbines. Charmes was the second town in France to have hydroelectricity and two turbines are actually still working before your eyes: the mechanical workshop and a generator. Discover the secrets of these technologies and take a walk behind the scenes of the manufacture of specific types of screws, spearheads of the Dazey-Thiébaut company, but also and above all the safety of yesteryear. Beware of the internal regulations which would make more than one apprentice go pale! The famous engineer Paul DAZEY, who was responsible for the company's development, will amaze you with his ingenuity and his various inventions. During our lively guided tours, full of anecdotes, you will take a trip back in time to learn more about the life of the workers and the history of Charmes. *beating = to give finish to leather or fabric by beating it. Visits on Sundays at 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm from Father's Day weekend to Heritage Days. Visits on request for groups from April to November. Possibility of organising educational workshops for groups: holiday centres, schools, etc.

Learn more about the amazing history of this former starch factory from the 19th century, a survivor of the Vosges heritage. Our association of enthusiasts will take you on a journey along the "Potato to Starch Trail", to discover a forgotten activity which was yet practised in more than 300 starch factories in the Vosges! For ten years now, the volunteers of the association "Les Kémottes" have been working to restore the potato processing process and to revive the history of the workers. This initiative was made possible thanks to the memories and funny anecdotes passed on by the "old-timers" of the starch factory. The visit begins along the canal that guided the water from the Vôge to the large mill wheel. This wheel produced the energy needed to operate the various machines in the starch factory. We then follow the path of the potato, from the cellar where it was stored, to the sacking of the starch obtained after the extraction process. Immerse yourself in the daily life of the workers: sorting, washing, grating, filtering, decanting, drying... until a fine, white, silky powder was obtained and sent to textile factories, paper mills, glucose factories... walk among the clever installations, from the production workshop to the floor where the starch was dried and sieved. A journey through time that will tell you a lot about the working conditions, the tools and the tasks of the workers in the starch factory. GUIDED TOUR: - Every Friday from June to the end of September at 2.30 pm, simple tour - Every Sunday from June to the end of September at 3pm, simple tour Other dates on reservation for groups: possibility of meal or snack Room hire, events, conferences, exhibitions...
