Rétro Musée

Saint-Martin-de-Crau - Cultural place

Closed for:Canceled or closed because of Covid-19

The Retro Museum is entirely dedicated to the reproduction of scenes from everyday life in the past. This nostalgic world can be accessed via the entrance to the La Crau Ecomuseum.
André Avis is an enthusiastic collector. In 1987, in partnership with the Municipality, he decided to open a museum on the theme of old professions and tools.
The museum has changed name since then, but its vocation remains the same, namely to preserve and pass on the memory of the Ancients to adults and primarily to children.
Visitors can admire almost 25 scenes from everyday life in the past, all of them astonishingly realistic. They can discover the history of the iron, (the oldest dates back to the 18th century), school, cabinet-making, carpentry, blacksmithing and hat-making.
These living testimonies of our heritage provide a better understanding of Man's history and ingenuity.
André Avis organises guided visits for local school groups.
