Enjoy a moment of pure scientific magic!
The museum is bathed in an atmosphere which, thanks to the immersive technologies used, brings the whole experience to life.
Your walk will also introduce you to the men and women who have made and continue to make Vaujany what it is today:
Magical little boxes will reveal their hidden secrets. You’ll explore the past life of the village through the stories of our elders, the seasonal movement of livestock to the summer pastures and the first peals of the school bells. You’ll hear passing pedlars, and be reminded of all the jobs people once did here…
You will then switch to Vaujany as it is today: a preserved village with town planning rules and building regulations, a tourist resort with its services and positioning.
This is also where you will be introduced to big companies and everyday routines in the mountains, whether it’s a question of limiting avalanche risks or preserving roads. You will hear about all the techniques and new professions (what a snowmaker really does, what exactly a musher’s life entails, etc.), through videos and interviews with residents, technicians, and… enthusiasts!
Lastly, you’ll learn about all the local entertainment here, our celebrations and balls, and everything that makes life in Vaujany so wonderful!
You can then get stuck into the challenges of future development! Having mastered the town’s historical development data, you can practice your own political and strategic decision-making: three “interactive walls”
invite you to tackle major contemporary challenges and implement a regional policy, or simply measure the impact of your own behaviour.
When you emerge from the forest, delighted and more knowledgeable, you will head back… into the air!
At the end of this incredible experience, we have installed a real professional flight simulator, which will give you the unique opportunity to learn how to fly a plane over Vaujany and its surroundings: make sure you don’t crash though!
