    A museum where it is good to stroll. Don't be fooled by the entrance, the interior is immense and very diverse, a two-hour visit or more to discover collections of objects, minerals, materials, etc....

    We have been coming to Rieu Montagné on vacation for several years. We always enjoy visiting this essential museum. This year we tried the family escape game. A very pleasant moment! We highly recommend! Not suitable for children under 9 years old, however. We also registered our daughters, aged 5 and a half and 9 years old, for the museum's "fun visit" workshop. They didn't want to leave and came back particularly delighted!! A special mention for the lady who supervises all these activities. The professionalism and adaptability she demonstrates greatly contribute to their success.

    A rural museum as we like them.... filled with odds and ends which bring back memories and which show children the evolution of daily life... The day of our visit, we had the chance to discover a commented exhibition on molds with diverse and varied uses, a treat! Congratulations to the whole team
