  • This museum deserves to be installed in a larger room and ground floor, accessible to people with disabilities, but such as it is, it deserves our attention. Space has been exploited to the maximum, very well laid out and with a beautiful staging the ideal would be a tour with presentation of the different santonniers and especially the explanations on their work. A santonnier, it isn't just anyone; not only they carry on a tradition that is dear to us, but it also creates characters with love. This tour can be made that slowly, carefully watching the expression of the faces, the attitudes, the details of clothing, colors. It is the art of the santonnier, who gives them a bit of humanity. All these topics are of quality, but at the end of the visit, you will definitely have preferences. For me, I have a particular fondness for the work of Roger Jouve. You can request information from the Lady of hospitality which is lovely, and when you leave, you'll know the difference between santonniers and manufacturers of santons.

  • The santons, what beautiful art. Everything is worked in the smallest detail. Everything is beautiful in this museum. In retrospect I remember these characters as if they were as big as me! I loved

  • Don't miss it, this would be a shame to the corner of the square of the column, small but so beautiful looking for mistakes... maybe you'll have to drink! the collections are amazing really to see

  • Very poor reception of the old lady sours at the entrance of the Museum. Why both aggression and strongly to your Museum's curious passersby asking your rates? Unfortunately, a cause of your no kindness, we fled and hope never again you 😱...

  • We are plunged into the universe of Pagnol. Kudos to the santonniers. Don Camillo and Pepone same are represented. The home is charming and a small Provencal music accompanies the tour.

  • Nice and quaint. All figurines and the cribs were made by local artisans and artists. If you go around here it is impossible not to visit it.
