The world of France's master craftsmen belonging to the compagnonnage (guild of journeyman companions) is on display in this fascinating museum. Shoemakers, blacksmiths, stonemasons, pastry chefs and carpenters are represented by impossibly fine scale models. Pieces include a booby-trapped lock designed to shoot anyone who doesn't open it properly.
