We bravely aimed our car south toward the Camargue Wild Life Refuge which borders on the Mediterranean Sea in far south France. After a multitude of roundabouts, we were in the wild and began to see the animals promised in our guide book. First we saw white wild horses and then bulls in the swampy fields on the side of...

We arrived at lunch time and the museum was closed, so we waited for 1PM and it opened right on time. We paid the admission (about 5 euros) and wandered through the exhibits which showed the early history of the development of this region. It looked very much like the USA's wild west with cowboys and a rough looking existence.... More

This is a small museum but full of the spirit of the Camargue and conveys a real sense of the area. Would not have missed it. There are short walks from there, and plenty of birdsong.

I recommend the walk over the museum. Not too much to see in it but does provide some history of the area. On the walk, you can see the white horses and bulls if they are cooperating. Also walks you out into the swamp area on a boardwalk and they have also built a bird blind so you can watch/photograph... More

We didn't expect much from this little museum when we first went in, but it depicts life for people in the Camarge

We arrived at 12:30 as the museum was closing for lunch. No mind - we decided to do the self-guided nature trail despite the blazing sun in June - "Mad dogs and (honorary) Englishmen go out in the midday sun" - we saw only one other couple. It was about a 1-1/2 hour stroll on berms through rice fields, along... More

We were driving through the camargue enjoying the scenery when we saw a sign for this museum. It is quite modest but very informative. We learned a lot about the social history and culture of the area. Many of the exhibits deal with the agriculture and other industry in the area. We learned about the cattle, horses and the cowboy...
