Archaeology from Neolithic times to the present day.
Situated on Saint Sigismond hill, the museum presents local life from Neolithic times to the present day: prehistoric tools, funerary furniture, gallo-roman architecture, jewellery, pottery and coins that bear witness to the first occupation of the Tarentaise valley by man. These objects retrace the history of Aime, the Gallic town known as "Les Ceutrons", then, in 21 B.C., capital of the Roman province called "Les Alpes Graies".
The story begins in the Neolithic period and runs through to the present day.

The museum is named after a former mayor of Aime who was a visionary and who, anticipating the closing of the mines in La Plagne, got together with other local communes to found the resort of La Plagne.

The Aime Historical and Archaeological Society now manages the museum's collections and it is included in the 'Musée de France' classification. Tours and reception are carried out in conjunction with the Plagne Vallée tourist office.
