I don't actually like nuts, although that shouldn't have been an issue if this museum were more interesting. It would certainly benefit from more interactive elements and the shop is great, but could have been more going on.

Never having many thoughts about Walnuts in the past, it seemed a curious side-trip during our one-month stay in the Dordogne, so we took a drive and visited this tiny museum/ factory/ shop. The film that was presented was so very interesting, that we suddenly had a new-found respect for the humble Walnut...! There are demonstrations of the organic oil... More

Small place in a picturesque setting. The museum starts with a movie, and this is brilliantly made. After the movie, you have a thorough understanding of the art of creating walnut oil. Then you can tour the facilities. And shop excellent walnut oil and similar products. Definitely a recommended stop-over in the area.

We stayed in Castlenaud-la-Chapelle for 1 week and walked (5 minutes) to this walnut farm. As it was walnut harvest time we felt it would be useful to understand what actually occurs. This wee museum had a very interesting film that explained the complete process (modern and traditional methods) and then we were able to walk around and see the... More

We decided that as we were in the Perigord we ought to find out about the walnut farms in the area. A large car park seemingly set in an orchard greeted us at the end of a driveway off one of the local roads in Castelnaud-la-Chappelle. As we walked up a slight slope we had a good look at the...
