Rural and craft museum, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"Oops, watch your head! Right away, we’re in the shoes of the clock-making peasants of the time, who were apparently short, given the height of the ceiling and the beams. The décor and old objects get us right in the mood. First of all, the kitchen, then the living room and the bedroom... But how did they manage to sleep in such small beds? Off to the stables: it smells just like the real thing! You feel like you’re there! There’s nothing like this short tour to find out how our ancestors lived."
