About

After two years of massive works, the Château des Rubins has become the Observatoire des Alpes (Alps Observatory). All year round, a modern, fun and interactive exhibition is available for the whole family to visit on the theme of Mountains with a capital M.

Partez en exploration à travers des ambiances lumineuses et sonores pour découvrir les nombreuses facettes de la vie dans les montagnes !

Le château des Rubins – Observatoire des Alpes ouvre ses portes sur une nouvelle scénographie constituée d'une cinquantaine de modules interactifs répartis sur quatre étages :
1) la géologie et la glaciologie
2) la faune et la flore
3) L’histoire de l'homme dans les montagnes
4) Les évolutions du climat

Le nouveau parcours est destiné aux curieux et à un public familial. Il couvre plus de 500m2 pour une durée de visite d’environ deux heures. Les informations sont légères, mais précises.

Le château des Rubins – Observatoire des Alpes propose également une large gamme d’activités et d’ateliers pour les familles. Elle se décline de trois manières :
1) Les « Rubinoscopes » : ces animations sont des démonstrations ou expériences conçues sous forme de courtes pastilles de 15/20 minutes sur le parcours scénographique. Elles ne nécessitent pas de réservation et sont proposées sans supplément au prix d’entrée.
2) « Au labo du château » : d’un format plus long : 1h à 2h, ces ateliers font la part belle à l’expérimentation permettant ainsi d’approfondir certaines thématiques. Ils sont proposés les mercredis ou dimanches, sur réservation, tout le long de l’année au tarif de 6€ par enfant et 8€ par adulte.
3) « Les rencards de l’observatoire » : toute l’année, le château organise des causeries avec des spécialistes reconnus de la thématique : historien, artiste, artisan, archéologue… Ces invités n’ont qu’un seul mot d’ordre : vulgariser. Les rencards auront lieu le dimanche matin avec accueil café/croissant pour le prix d’un billet d’entrée du château (7€) à raison d’un tous les deux mois.
