Musée de la Paysannerie
Just outside Dol-de-Bretagne in Baguer-Morvan, you will find a very interesting museum. The Musée de la Paysannerie (“Museum of Peasantry” is the exact translation!)
What is there? Well, where shall I start? Everything to do with farming (tools, machinery, cloths, etc), and life in the countryside in the 20th century.
You name it and they have it! 6 huge outbuildings have been converted into a museum. They also have farm animals (chickens, cockers, peacocks, cows, donkeys, rabbits, etc).
Allow about 1 to 1 ½ hours to visit it! If you go there on a rainy day, bring an umbrella as you will need to walk from one outbuilding to another!
€5 for adult and €3 for children. After the visit, you will be offered a glass of cider (bolée de cidre) made locally.
Free car park.
You will find this museum on the Dol-de-Bretagne – Combourg road. It is about 20 minutes from our gite.
Go and see the standing stone nearby. Read this post here.
