  • Home of the Marsh very informative and necessary to understand the marshes. Coulon reign but on a feeling that the tourist is took to "cow milk"and that's a shame. Is it really necessary to charge the bike circuit boards while the Museum, the boats are already well paid. This racket feeling my forbidden to buy anything in the Museum by principle and this is very sad.

  • Visit enjoyable and instructive about the swamp. Beautifully landscaped Museum which introduces the life of the former swamp. Located in an idyllic setting between Jetty, restaurant, and small shop. Negatives, costs € 7 per person for a visit of about 30 to 45 minutes maximum (tariff which, by the way, are not indicated in the Fund, it is the mystery). What is also regrettable is the fact that the Department of Deux-Sèvres is at no time put forward, only the Marsh, the Department is never mentioned in the Museum, in the shop nothing no more, no object or memory (door keys, magnet, stickers, coat of arms...) branded Deux-Sèvres.
