The Vitromusee Romont is one of the rare places in the world dedicated to the fragile and timeless art of stained glass.

The technique of the stained glass is explained in the workshop of the Museum, where attractive and high-level introductory training sessions take place.

The Vitromusée presents an exceptional collection of reverse painting on glass (tables, pieces of furniture, jewels) ?

Different options are proposed to the children so that they discover the art of glassworkers by enjoying themselves.
A game takes the children through the castle, on the tracks of Jérome the ghost.
