Pyromin Museum

Located in Corbeyrier, the Pyromin Museum advertises itself as the first museum in Europe dedicated to pyrotechnics, fireworks and explosives.

From March to October, the Pyromin Museum welcomes visitors in the unusual setting of the former Champillon military fort which boasts an impressive surface area of over 7'000m2. A visit to the museum is a fascinating journey through time and this exhibition hall, in the heart of the Swiss mountains, is certainly a novel introduction to the development of fireworks and ammunition from the Middle Ages right up to the 21st Century.

Who invented gunpowder? When were fireworks first used? How were the engines started on the Ariane space shuttle? What was life like for the soldiers in the fort? All the answers to these explosive questions and more will be revealed during a guided tour of the Pyromin Museum.
