Recently renovated in a logic of sustainable development, the fold under the frame of origin offers immersion in the Camargue region of yesterday and today with the permanent exhibition the thread of water, over time.Historical pieces, interactive, playful installations, sound, videos and contemporary works of art invite small and large to surf between past, present and future, far from the clichés conveyed.A trail experience can be extended through the path that runs along the canal and the rice paddies to the marais, passing through the gardian hut.A cultural programme throughout the year, performances, projections, meetings debates and thematic tours at the Museum or in the territory of the Park offer a fun and different from the culture camarguaise approach.Artistic route at the start of the trail, a work of Tadashi Kawamata, Horizons, invited to rise to ponder issues of water in the delta of the Rhône.
