In the Quercy region, at the gateway to the Périgord Noir, Benoît Jouclar and his team of volunteers have restored a century of agricultural tools, bringing this true heritage back to life, bearing witness to the traditions of daily life.
In a 3000m2 space, a collection of more than 200 cars, motorcycles, tractors, hundreds of agricultural machines and tools is presented with the bonus of a guide who will share with you the evolution of the rural world's machinery and tell you some surprising anecdotes.
This museum is intended for all those who are passionate about the agricultural world, but also about cars, everyday objects of our "old" people, or simply curious.
Among the latest novelties: a bread oven to delight you with the recipes of yesteryear, reconstructions of the school and the grocery store of yesteryear, an old trades area with scenes of characters and animals in life-size, a model area, toys from my childhood, irons, coffee grinders, gramophones and phonographs, sewing machines, dolls, animations for children... and a Renault Schooner, a circuit for children, the provision of cars and tractors with pedals...
The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.
