    During the visit and through the collections of the museum of Allevard-les-Bains, the public is transported into local history. You will discover a huge collection of objects, photos, engravings and paintings that retrace the history of Allevard-les-Bains. Collections that bear witness to the transformation from Allevard, an industrial town, into Allevard-les-Bains, a spa and holiday resort.

    Among the most important items are a cold inhalation basin designed by Doctor Niepce, a Dauphinoise trunk from the 17th century blast furnace, the Veyton turbine (Pinsot). These pieces testify to the orientation of this museum of Allevard-les-Bains around 5 themes: agriculture, thermalism, iron and steel industry, tourism and hydroelectricity.
