Ecomusée du Haut Beaujolais
Thizy les Bourgs
Installé dans une ancienne manufacture de couvertures et molletons du 19e siècle, l’Ecomusée est un témoin majeur de l’activité industrielle textile du territoire.
Close to 1500 objects have been collected and no fewer than 8 successive exhibitions have been put on since the museum was founded (1998).
The "Manufacture" (Factory) is currently under renovation. Once the renovation work is finished, the museum will re-open and present the evolution of textiles in the region, narrated in four parts. An introduction to the Haut-Beaujolais region, its industrialization, the manufacture of blankets and factory work, the manufacturer's workshop and working from home.
