Aside from its natural bounty, the town of Aurillac also has many man-made sights and attractions that it could offer tourists. In fact, it is one of the few places in the world that has a Volcano Museum. As there are just a few institutions of this kind in the whole world, the museum is undoubtedly one of the best attractions in Aurillac.
Located within the great walls of the old Chateau St-Etienne, the Volcano Museum is considered to be quite unusual. This is because it is devoted only to all things that are volcanic or pertaining to it. There are many exhibitions within the museum that will impart information to visitors on how volcanoes are formed and why they erupt. There are artifacts, pictures as well as collected samples from eruption sites. While not all people are interested to know more about volcanoes, for those people who find these land formations fascinating, the Volcano Museum is definitely among the best attractions in Aurillac for them.
