TIME MUSEUM

Located in the sumptuous setting of the Granvelle Palace in Besançon, the museum of Time invites the inquisitive visitor to discover the obssessional quest of measurement by the masters of Time. Besançon was known as the capital of watchmaking, here it is the capital of Time. From astronomical clocks to the echo of frequency, from the piezoelectricity of quartz to the atomic clocks, from the infinitely big to the infinitely small of micro-technologies, every thing here is excessive.
