“fascinating to learn all about silk and see the worms at work!”

La Magnanerie du Coudray
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This museum is set down a little path in an old troglodyte dwelling which is charming in itself. The museum is tiny but full of interesting information, and the lady who showed us round was really enthusiastic. She told us of the decline of the French silk industry. The highlight for children is to see the silkworms munching on their mulberry leaves and watch a moth or two emerging. They sold the most amazing silk based skin products too, but they are very pricey. Really worth a visit. Not for children under 7y I would say as there is a lot of talking. There is a sheet for English speakers, and I think sometimes there is a person who speaks English doing the tours.
