A great museum for a quick tour round the history of the area. Lovely to check out the history while in the area. Some lovely costumes etc on display and an interesting building in itself. Pop in for a look.

This is a surprisingly roomy gem of a museum filling several floors in an old castle in Pont L'Abbé. It's worth going there even for the architecture. Very cheap entrance. Lovely displays of costumes, furniture and artifacts charting life in this very poor area until around the 1960s, with video footage of festivals and saints' day celebrations from several decades...
