Jura Museum, Delémont
"It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, which spoilt our plans for a walk in the forest. So we decided to visit the Jura Museum in Delémont. I remember going there once with my school to see the crosier of St. Germain. As I recall, I was surprised at how small it was but also amazed by the fine decorations carved in its gold covering. This time, there was a temporary exhibition on the Saints who lived in our region. At first sight perhaps not the most attractive of subjects, but the original, subtle, insightful and lighthearted approach made it extremely interesting. We also took a quick look at the permanent exhibition, which will be completely revised. We even discovered some pieces of bread put aside by a soldier in the First World War. Impressive!"
