We passed by the museum by accident, and were stunned by the beautiful setting and the very impressive exhibits (including a huge temporary exhibition on enamels). Worth a visit!

In true French style this is a creative, really well done local museum with helpful friendly staff. Euros 5 entry for this museum and 4 others. Lots of focus on local food and the agricultural base of the region. Beautifully preserved farm buildings some dating from C14th.
