    Why is the chestnut tree called the breadfruit tree, the mulberry tree, the golden tree? An incredible collection of 10,000 exhibits give an understanding of the life, know-how and history of the Cevennes.
    Man and the objects he has made are at the center of the discourse.
    As a heritage, the memory of the spinning mill, the oldest to have innovated and the last one in activity in France, is sublimated by a deliberately contemporary renovation and extension.

    All summer long, the museum offers shows on Thursdays at 6 pm, a treasure hunt on Fridays and many visits.

    Note that you can download the Maison Rouge application on the museum's website to visit independently in English, Dutch or German.
