Welcome to Barryland - Musée et Chiens du Saint-Bernard
The lively museum located in a former armoury next to the Roman amphitheatre is a meeting place that brings together people and the Saint Bernards from the Great Saint Bernard pass.
Our famous hospice dogs represent the main attraction. The ground floor consists of the kennels, boxes and an area for looking after the dogs. The boxes lead out to the outdoor enclosure where the Saint Bernards can romp around freely while visitors look on. Dog enthusiasts of all ages can stroke the Saint Bernards and watch as they frolic around in the park grounds. Our exceptional Saint Bernards can be found at the museum every day.
On the first floor, embark on a tour of the history of the Great Saint Bernard pass.
Since November 2016, the "Barry Family Visitor Experience" offers fun and games for all ages. The 500 m2 interactive Barry Family children’s exhibition may be found on the top floor and features adventures, games and activities for discovers big and small.
It is not just an educational exhibition for children, families and school classes. Rather, it is a space to experience emotional moments on the subject of the Saint Bernard dogs. Our young visitors can also discover the origin region of Barry with its sights. They can play, draw and learn in the amphitheater face to face, how dogs behave and learn more about the race, behavior and training of our four-legged friends.
An unforgettable experience for the whole family.
To round off their trip to the museum, visitors can enjoy refreshments or recharge their batteries at the "Le Collier d'Or" restaurant.
