The "Class of 1930", installed in the former Ruault-Récamier school, has found a beautiful setting in this 19th century building, right next to the Town Hall. The museum gathers hundreds of authentic objects around the wooden desks, the stove, the platform and the blackboard.
The schoolmaster will take you on a 2-hour tour of the life of a classroom in the past. It's a real time machine: come and sit on the school benches and rediscover the atmosphere of wax, chalk and ink.
You will write a "dictation of the Certif" with a penholder and purple ink, just for fun. A temporary exhibition will be presented to you.
To close the activity, you will enjoy an old-fashioned snack.
- Animation for the general public (from 6 to 99 years old) : 1st Saturday of each month, at 2pm. Entrance fee refunded if no mistakes in the dictation. Free for children in primary school.
- Groups welcome by reservation.
- Special activities for grandparents and grandchildren : on the first Tuesday of each school holiday period, from 10am to 12pm.
Reservation on 06 64 44 53 02.
