CIMA Museum

The town of Sainte-Croix in the Yverdon-les-Bains region is the world capital of music boxes. In the 19th century, the town became home to many specialised industries and artisans. Visit the CIMA museum and feel like a child again as you explore its exceptional collections.

The Centre International de Mécanique d’Art (CIMA), international museum of mechanical art, has a historic collection of music boxes and humanoid automatons. Some of the pieces are world renowned and have an exceptional mechanical complexity, such as “Le Prince Eugène” created by François Junod who is able to draw and “Le Pierrot” created by Michel Bertrand who is writing a love letter to his beloved Colombine.

The CIMA museum also includes a reconstruction of a mechanical workshop as it used to be in the early 20th century with several authentic machines.

The REUGE SA factory in Sainte-Croix continues the tradition of the manufacture of precision mechanical movements with its exceptional modern creations, highly sought after by heads of state and royal families all over the world.
