Nivernais Museum of Education

The Museum of Education is the brainchild of a group of enthusiasts who set up an association to preserve and display the educational heritage of the Nivernais region for visitors.

A living testimony of the educational past of the département: a reconstitution of a classroom in a rural school in the early 20th century, presentation of documents, school books and teaching materials from the ‘Jules Ferry' years until 1980. Thematic exhibitions, specialist rooms showing the evolution of techniques ‘from the pen… to the mouse'. Gallery of memories (photos of school groups and teacher promotions).

Rates: €4 – €2 for children (under 14), job seekers and the disabled.

Opening hours: Tuesday and Wednesday: 9:00am – 12 noon and 2:00pm – 5:00pm Thursday and Friday: 2:00pm – 5:00pm, closed on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. School visits by appointment.
