Take on the Aventure Michelin challenge as a family. It's a story that very many families don't know about. A story that played out here, in Clermont-Ferrand, in Auvergne, was the birth of a French brand, which has become international today. Who could question the reputation of the Bibendum brand. You’ll learn about all the facets of this very colorful character as you stroll through this site, with a scenography that’s as much fun as it is inventive. The scenography follows the image of the brand: its diversity and richness is surprising. Between planes, interactive layouts, various models of exhibited vehicles, there's something for everyone. The 9-ton 10-wheeler, 2CV Citroën, tricyles, prototypes, Aventure Michelin is an attraction that will inspire all would-be mechanics. You can get up close to the models and touch and smell them for a complete experience. Passing through the showroom and activities area on the first floor, you’ll discover the entire range of Michelin tires; not to mention the maps, guides and Michelin items that contributed to the brand’s success and the legend of the two Michelin brothers. A few minutes from your Campanile hotel Clermont Ferrand Centre, Aventure Michelin tells you a family story. Nothing like a family visit to trigger a calling!
The Bargoin Museum reveals Auvergne heritage to you. While it can sometimes be difficult to take children to a museum, budding archaeologists will be easily drawn to Bargoin Museum. Pass under the opulent entrance and its academic bas-relief to discover a place devoted to the history of the region. Once inside, your family will enjoy the impressive grand staircase that takes center stage and leads to the upper floor. Start by visiting the section dedicated to archeology. On site, you’ll find many remains, from digs conducted in the region, such as the skeleton of the “young girl from Cheix” dating to Ancient Neolithic. Prehistory is followed by Antiquity, with some items coming from the depths of time. Gallo-Roman glassware, holy objects, statuettes, clothing: there’s nothing like it to explain history to children. If you didn’t do so at the entrance, think about taking your children to the giant foot of the statue that takes center stage at the entrance. The result is guaranteed. More delicate, the textile arts section is no less instructive and proves to be an enriching educational outing. The museum combines this important collection with temporary exhibitions, guided tours for the family and children’ workshops for a journey through time with family.
The pleasure of being together. At Polydome, there are many ways to discover Clermont-Ferrand as a family and this can happen through a tour of Polydome, located at 950m from Campanile hotel Clermont Ferrand Centre. Between the picturesque Montferrand district and the historic center, with the district of the Basilica of Notre-Dame du Port in Clermont-Ferrand, this event center is easily accessible. Meet on the tree-lined Place du 1er Mai, to walk with barefoot on the grass as a family. On this unofficial garden for Polydome’s events, children will find an amusement park with a play area and, in the summertime, swimming pools and water games. In fact, from the Sable Show to the Parkafun, fun family events are regularly organized during the summer. Slides, events, inflatable attractions, there’s something for everyone! But grown-ups, rest assured. Polydome also has something for more mature audiences. The proof of this is the “Coopé”, the Coopérative de Mai. In this the biggest concert hall in Clermont-Ferrand, you can attend concerts of all kinds, since the program of events is so eclectic. It’s perhaps the opportunity to foster musical curiosity in younger people. After all, talent has no age.
