Dreams from three Eras

temporary exhibition from 26 June to 26 August 2018

Initiated by the "Automates & Merveilles" Association, this itinerant exhibition displays the results of a restoration programme concerning three prestigious objects, crafted by Neuchâtel watchmakers included in three great watchmaking collections in the canton of Neuchâtel. These restored pieces are François Ducommun's planetarium from the MIH, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Pierre Jacquet-Droz's clock with singing bird from the Musée d'horlogerie in Le Locle, Château des Monts, and Albert Billeter's astronomical clock from the Musée d'art et d'histoire in Neuchâtel.
