Orle d'Or Tower and "Société des Sciences" Museum

Tour de l’Orle d’Or et Musée de la société des sciences (en)

[favorite_button post_id=”” site_id=””]

Visit the tower 

Discover the 5 floors of this sensational building, also headquarters of a society named “Société des Sciences historiques et naturelles de Semur-en-Auxois”. Inside, you will find a museum with a gallery room, a technological collection, a library and a conference room.

In 2010, after being closed for a long time, the basement of the Orle d’Or Tower once again became accessible. The Sciences Society helped greatly in the reconstruction of its landing stage, where the sentinels were situated. This historic place makes clear the medieval role of the tower, which was difficult to understand after Henry IV ordered the demolition of the keep, and after the construction of the Joly Bridge in the late 18th century.

Visits : from 2pm to 7pm in July and August. Closed on Monday.

Duration : 40 minutes approximately

Admission : 3 euros, free under 18. Open on some weekends in May, June and September.
