The world famous PACCARD bell foundry offers a range of tours all year round for you to learn more about the world of metal casting.


Established in 1796, the PACCARD foundry has today become an emblem of French industry. This ancestral skill has been passed down from father to son for 7 generations and embodies the successful blend of traditional and modern methods. The Museum was created in 1984, just next to the Foundry in Sevrier, lead by the bubbly Anne Paccard!  Discover the magic of metal casting through a variety of tour packages, including the workshop visit where you may even have the chance to see the bells being cast!
