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. 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!"
