We spent a lovely morning in the museum learning about the cultivation of lavender and seeing the historic machinery that has been used to harvest it over many decades.

Avoid this tourist trap designed for tour buses. The gift shop has about ten items marketed ad nauseum.

Want to learn something about the use and extraction of essences from lavender? This is the place to visit. The museum is geared to bus loads of tourists, but the gift shop is extensive, staffed with helpful, courteous ladies who speak many languages, and features a wide selection of lavender related products. Our suggestion is to pass on the museum... More

We were there the 1st week of August and Lavender had already bloomed and been harvested. We had a delightful tour of the museum accompanied with a short film and then we went directly into the store and shopped. Fabulous lotions and shower gels along with my favorite. Honey with Lavender!

To be honest we actually decided not to take the paid your and instead went to their boutique store. Great items but prices not great nor was the service. Washrooms were clean but you needed a code to access which you can get from the cashier.
