Over a period of 225 years, more than 120,000 bells have been made at Paccard bell-founders, some of them breaking world records.
In 1891, the Savoyard company cast the famous "Savoyarde" (the biggest bell in France, weighing 18,835kg). In 1950, 57 replicas of the famous Liberty Bell were made (one for each American state). In 1998, the Bell-founders made a new record with the World Peace Bell (33 tonnes), the biggest swinging bell in the world.
The Musée Paccard invites you to come and discover the expertise of Paccard!
On the programme: guided tour of the workshops, bell-casting (only on Thursdays, with a prior booking), Ars Sonora® concerts (voices and bells), a speciality from Maison Paccard, private tours, etc.
Since 2021, The Musée Paccard suggests ending your tour with a sweet treat at the "Au Paccard Gourmand" tea room. An unforgettable moment in a warm and inviting setting.
