camargue museumThe museum was set up by the Regional Nature Park in order to document the development of the region. Situated in a former sheep farm, the museum traces the evolution of the Camargue’s landscapes as human activities progressed. The museum gives visitors a taste of day-to-day life in one of the area’s traditional farmhouses (mas) in the nineteenth century, the work of the gardians, and traditional activities such as rice and salt-making, breeding livestock and water management.

Outside, a discovery trail starts from the museum to take you through marshes, pastures, and reed beds, leading to a wildlife observation point.
