Musée des outils agraires

Châteaurenard - Museum

In the heart of this old centre located in a house made of exposed stonework, the Museum of Agricultural Tools recounts the development of agriculture in our region thanks to irrigation. Visitors can discover a varied collection of restored old tools used for growing cereals, vines and vegetables, some of them from the 19th century. These tools, made of iron and wood, were extensions of the hands of the women and men who got the best out of the earth.
Every year, an exhibition highlights and explains Provençal traditions, customs and skills. 2013 exhibition: rugby in Châteaurenard.
