The Hat Working Museum is located in Chazelles-sur-Lyon, in the Monts du Lyonnais in the tourist area of Forez, 30 km north of Saint-Etienne and 45 km west of Lyon.

From 300 to 1000 m high, extends a country with 1000 faces, green and generous, from the Forez plain crossed by the Loire river in the west, to the Monts du Lyonnais in the east; from the spa town of Montrond-les-Bains, in the south, to the Mont Boussuivre in Violay and its famous Tour Matagrin in the north.
On foot, by bike, by car ... roaming is the perfect way to discover this territory and its wide variety of landscapes, reliefs and tourist wealth.
