  • . Not a theme park, a journey back in time” A very pleasant day can be spent here - we have visited several times and enjoyed it each time. TIP 1 Find out the times of the little train that takes you there, otherwise you'll be waiting at the station with nothing to do (there is no road access) TIP 2 Buy the fresh-baked bread made from flour milled on the premises - gorgeous! TIP 3 Very young children will be bored and fractious - it's not a theme park, there are no rides or slides. Ages 7 and above. TIP 4 take bottles of water and hats in the summer months - it can get very hot moving round. How many years have we been coming here? Too many to count! But the fact that we keep coming back tells you something very important: it's worth it. From catching the little olde-worlde train to get here, to peering inside the old houses and farm buildings, to walking around the lovely grounds and to learning (re-learning!) so much about life in the past, it's a great experience. Not for the toddler age group, but even teens will find something of interest. Especially as there's no wifi, so they will HAVE to ignore their phones! .
  • Nice atmosphere, you really get the idea how it was back in the end of the 19th century, living in an ancient French village.
  • Very nice "Museum". Life shows beautifully and vividly about 1900 around making it very appealing for small guests. Tip: Stock up anyway at the bakery. Very good bread and rolls with ham or olives. Absolutely worth the (high) price.

  • Very nice Museum about the history of the region. Very widely, but all within easy reach. Ride the train to the ground is a highlight for little guests. 😎 There are also information material in German. French friends are better, which can go more into detail. But beware: the best not the best things attract. It is very sandy / dusty.
