Moulins souterrains du Col-des-Roches

Installed in the 17C to make use of the force of water from the Locle Valley, the underground mills were used intensively until the 19C. A glorious part of their history has thus been reconstructed. An exhibition of the role and function of mills precedes the visit of the installations. By going down into the caves, visitors can see the galleries and a restored flour mill. A museum about the functioning and the role of the mills illustrates the use of hydropower and enables visitors to gain insight into the special character of the Jura.

This museum greets you in the following languages: D/F/I/E
