Medieval Factory: Spectacles, paper, wheelbarrow and other inventions

Veytaux - Exposition

“Medieval Factory: Spectacles, paper, the wheelbarrow and other inventions” is the fruit of a collaboration with the Espace des Inventions.

Combining history with all things technical, it covers inventions that date back to the Middle Ages that are still helping make our everyday lives easier today. These inventions are on display alongside visual aids to show how they were used and operated, which helps us to understand how they work and what makes them so useful.

The exhibition is interactive and fun; it introduces you to these inventions while also helping you learn about the history and technology behind them. Most importantly, it's about getting a hands-on experience!
