A nice little museum about balloons
Aug 2019
If you like to read about Picard and balloons you are at the right place: a nice small museum where you turn around a balloon with videos all around.
When we went, we saw a little exhibition about CERN which was great!

Hot Air Balloon
Jan 2017 • Friends
It is a pretty small town, where you can visit the primary spots on foot. The town was covered with snow and it was just breathtaking. Not only can you enjoy the hot air balloon shows but also can you participate in different kinds of activities. A very nice experience here!

Balloon Exhibition
Apr 2015 • Couples
If you have 12 minutes to spare, pop in and take a look at the exhibition. There is virtually nothing to do in Chateau d'oex, which is why it is so nice, so its good there is a kind of museum here and monument to the round the world balloon trip, although you get the impression this is a one trick pony in a one horse town. Nonetheless, the historical reference does literally put the place on the map. I think the exhibition could be slightly modernised but it is indeed very busy during the balloon festival in January

Small but interesting display.

The display was small but interesting enough. Information is clearly presented and easy to understand. Quite an amazing achievement. Well worth a quick visit!

Awesome record of round the world ballon trip
Aug 2014 • Family
Picard (CH) and Jones (GB) set off from Chateau d'Oex for their historic non-stop circumnavigation of the globe. This small museum has plenty of details and video about that as well as other information, history, artefacts about hot-air balloning.
