History Museum Museum
Take a trip back the classroom at School Museum. This small center explores 19th-century France's education system through information displays and historical artifacts in a preserved classroom setting. Examine informative posters and classroom equipment as you compare today's educational establishments with those of yore. Don't miss the opportunity to sit at an old-fashioned desk and practice your handwriting thanks to a quill and inkwell. Those unpracticed in the art of calligraphy may want to avoid wearing white.

  • This museum is the history of the French school in the premises of the old school of the city of Carcassonne where one can admire a superb library of old school books of all kinds, but you can also sit on the old benches of the school (of all sizes) and fun to write to the feather and the purple ink. In addition to the dictation written on the Blackboard, three small problems will make you brain the fun way... On top of that, feel free to swap with the "guardian of the scene", Evelyne, a passionate who we award honours.

  • The idea of the museum is itself great. If you are old, you will recognize some things. If you are young, it is worth to take a look at it. It may even help to understand many things.  more »

  • It is not a must but it is interesting and well mounted. It's nothing expensive. I would visit it if you spare time on the trip. Although uncommon pass clear...

  • Date: 25/08/2016 place to visit: School Museum walking along one of the streets of la Cité found this small museum dedicated to teaching that was made in France between the third and the Fourth Republic. There are five rooms where school supplies and documents of the time, where you also have the possibility of writing with pen and purple ink in a few very old desks are exposed. In addition there is a library with manuals, files, etc. It is a most interesting visit if you go with children since they "share" of as they were former schools.

  • 3.5 free adult euro for children. The Museum in him even is average but the conference on chivalry is very interesting.

Where to stay in Carcassonne

Although the picturesque La Cite is a tempting place to stay, consider the quieter and more affordable La Bastide Saint Louis down the hill. La Bastide provides easy access by foot to the walled La Cite for daily tours and peace and quiet after dark.
