El millor museu de la vida rural que mai hem vist.
Aug 2017 • Family
Absolutely recommended for families and children. Many authentic items in display. All the information available in three languages: CAT SPA ENG. Different sections: pottery, farms, cuttery, smith, agriculture machinery... The visit lasts 2h at least.

Very interesting museum that shows how was the life in small rural villages last century. It's the contribution of an important saga related with the town of L'Espluda de Francoli

Wonderful museum
Jun 2015 • Couples
We visited here having travelled inland from Tarragona. Besides the fantastic museum, the journey is also great as you climb up from the coast through the mountains and valleys to L'Espluga. This is a lovely museum, well-planned with superb exhibits. You feel as if you have all the time in the world to see the static exhibits as well as the the great audio visuals. The museum is universally accessible and has a nice but small shop. The curator is very friendly. Not expensive. Local bar in the nearby plaza provides a great luch.

Very Well Done

This museum was recommended by our host in Montblanc and was well worth it. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon in June and we had the entire museum to ourselves. It started out with an audio presentation and segued into a room filled with small figurines depicting rural life. You then wend your way through a maze of rooms with lots of actual displays and video presentations. We spent a good how wandering around sitting to watch videos of saddle making, barrel making and blacksmithing. We really enjoyed our time there although it was a bit hard to find.

Unmissable!

This museum is about half an hour from Tarragona or Reus. It's worth the trip alone but could be combined with a visit to the walled town of Montblanc or the Monastery at Poblet.
The name might give the impression that the visitor will see rooms full of old ploughs and hoes, nothing could be farther from the truth, it's one of the most fascinating museums I've been to.
It's spread over two buildings, one old and one new, and the exhibits are displayed extremely creatively using lighting, sound and special effects. English speakers won't have a language problem, the written information and the audiovisual elements are in Catalan, Castellano and English, and the English translation is very good which isn't always the case. It's probably a destination for school parties, most of it would interest children. Highly recommended.

A must to understand Catalonia
Dec 2012 • Family
A must to understand Catalonia if you like to explore the antropological history of cultures.
100 diorams of rural life made by an artist from Olot, northern Country. Explain very well the life in rural environments. Very very nice, even for kids.
