CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
Children are our future, and they will be the next ambassadors of our heritage. It is up to us to enable them to discover the rich history and cultural wealth of the Arc-et-Senans Royal Saltworks. They can learn about the Saltworks in a fun and interactive way by using the audio-guide tour especially created for youngsters. Furthermore, special activities are organised in connection with each year’s cultural programmes, including workshops, our ‘Utop’tits’ activities, and game booklets relating to the temporary exhibits.
