Nice little museum, interesting and well made. With a cute little shop where we can buy lot of products made with real lavander.
The museum is small but jam packed with information. The children weren't entitled to audio guides as their entry was free but they kindly gave us some for them anyway which was great as it kept the kids entertained. We learnt so much about the harvesting and distilling of the lavender to make the oil. Before visiting, we didn't know... More
Note that Musee de la Lavande and The Lavender Museum are the same place .....should not be shown as two different attractions . Very confusing. See my review under Musee.
We went not expecting much, yet learned so much about the process of growing, harvesting and producing lavendar and lavendine products. There is a short movie first (in various languages) and then a tour of the museum and a lovely gift shop.
Today my wife and I spent an hour in the Lavender Museum in Coustellet, France. Since we are seniors we each paid 5.80 euros for admittance. You are given an audio device which provides instructive dialogue as you make your way through the museum after watching a 10 minutes introductory and beautiful movie about lavender growing, distilling and processing. I... More
This is one of the few place where you can get the 100% pure lavender oil, that is medicine for thousands of things. The tour through the museum is wonderful the the shop store after the tour is great.
We found this quite be accident driving through Provence and didn't have time to go into the actual museum, just the shop. It had a lovely fragance in the air, and had many, many lavender products to sell, but mostly soaps, sachets, oils, lotions. I was interested in culinary lavender as I collect it along the vaious places I travel... More
dear Visitor, thanks for your message on trip advisor! but why do you say "nothing special" as you even did not visited our museum. you went into the shop. we are lavender grower and distiller and specialised in cosmetics. i'm sorry to tell you that Provencal people did not eat lavender. this is why, by respect for our customers, we...

This museum is all about the history and cultivation of lavender. After you get your ticket, the attendant explains in person the difference between true lavender and the cheaper varieties, showing visitors the actual plants. Then tourists are ushered into a comfortably air conditioned room to see a movie about how lavender is grown. The museum is really only one... More
Beautifully kept lovely place and the most friendly staff! However, I have no idea why you have to pay 6,5 euro to watch a video and have access to the shop, where you are sure to spend some money. The shop is exquisitely designed and has a wide array of products made with fine lavender.
Dear Visitors, thanks for your message on trip advisor ! I'm very happy you enjoyed very much our shop. but I'm sorry you think you have paid your entrance fee for the museum for nothing. perhaps you were to excited by shopping and you rushed to the shop ?! please, next time you come, take your time to visit properly...

Honestly, the Lavender Museum seems primarily designed to funnel you into the gift shop. I thought admission was somewhat expensive (6.5€), but you do get a handset which will describe the exhibits. After entering, you are given a brief talk describing different types of lavender, then you enter the museum. The museum basically is a collection of stills from early... More
Dear Visitor, thanks for your message on trip advisor, I'm sorry that "Fodor's Provence ", a guide that is unknown in France, has given a false information about our museum. we never proposed to our visitors to cut lavender in our lavender field. perhaps you should write a message to "Fodor's Provence ". best regards and see you again in...
