Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My mum and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum. The first section is all about the history of plum growing and prune making in the area. You can either have an audio guide or have a hard copy to read. We had one of each and the audio guide took longer so we were a bit out of sync. The second section is a very interesting film about plums and prune making today on the farm. And the third section is a little tasting of prune items made on the farm. All delicious. We were there for no more than an hour which was perfect for us both. The owner and her daughters were delightfully friendly and helpful. A great way to learn a bit more about such a lovely area.

Visited this place twice, as I was too late the first time for the tour. Everything you always wanted to know about the prunes of this area and how they became so famous. The museum has tours in numerous languages via headsets and recordings. The staff is friendly and one did and excellent job helping this English only speaking visitor. You'll get to taste prunes, and a variety of their prune products. If you are in the area I consider it time well spent. Great for families.

It was interesting to see the process of drying plums in the past and today. I was very surprised to see prunes used in various alcoholic beverages. This is small family operated farm, supplementing their prune business income by having a museum of prune related products and machinery for the eco- tourism. They partner with the hazelnut farm located nearby. The farmers in this area run a "Marche Gourmet" at the City square on a weekend where the farmers prepare and sell their specialty foods.

We where looking for something to do in the area with a teenager boy and a grandmother. Came across this on TA and thought we would give it ago.
Although they don’t speak much English, they did try their hardest but we did get a guidebook in English.
We all had a fantastic time looking round this place and didn’t realise how interesting it would be.
It’s well worth a trip here and for £5 entry, you get free tasting of the products from Prunes to sweets
It kept all the family happy for over 2 hours.

We went to the maze having read positive reviews on TP. The staff spoke some English and had quizzes in English. They were really friendly and helpful. The prune ice-cream with white chocolate was delicious. They also had leaflets for other places to visit. There is lots to do and is well worth a trip if you are in the area.

You've really got to like prunes to enjoy this museum. Some interesting old artefacts and the museum makes you realise the importance of the plum to the local economy. Interesting to see how the local farmers put their plums in the bread ovens!!!

...then this might be your museum to visit. A farm/shop/museum dedicated to prunes might be an overkill for just about anyone else. Their shop does have just about everything you can add a prune to, including whiskey. Nice location, next to the Lot river.

Knowing how important the Prune d'Argen was/is to the area, I didnt see how I could not visit. I was so glad I had as it put any bits of info I previously had, perfectly right. Where I was holidaying had a thing called "the prune oven" which I couldnt see the relevance of. The museum exhibits of the various styles of prune oven helped me to understand how the one where I was staying must have worked.
Being English, again i was given a pamphlet that perfectly explained the different processes in the production from Prune (plum) to Pruneau, very interesting. But being English, I did miss somewhat the flow of the "tour" because the guide spoke the tiniest bit of English. I understand French and felt that an explanation of how the "tour" would flow would have made the visit less confusing. The tours are timed so you cannot go round on your own. You got with a group of other visitors and the French visitors listen to a loudspeaker audio in each room. At the end of each room's audio, the guide returns and points you in the direction of the next room. A bit muddly. To be honest, once I got to the room full of dovecotes, pretty though they were, I needed little time there and just returned to the shop to spend way too much money!
The samples that are on offer work their magic. A 'pruneau" is nothing like a prune we might get for school dinners in England. These are to die for! Then try the "enforcee" once which are stoned and stuffed with a prune puree, oh my, and finally, cover them in dark chocolate? Just heavenly.
Well worth a visit and try to keep a tight grip on your purse :-) (The chocolate covered ones I bought didnt last two days and the enforce were gone by the time I got "home" that night .

This small and reasonably priced attraction was worth a visit considering we were close-by. There are guide books in English and a video with English subtitles. The produce is by no means cheap but quite delicious. A tasting of a small range of their produce is included in the price.
Almost forgot to add: where else can you see the oldest prunes IN THE WORLD.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much there was to see and then taste. A guidebook in English was supplied for the visit, plus a video with English subtitles. Very friendly reception. Free camping for motorhomes (you pay for electric hook-up and water if you use them). Cafe for meals. Riverside setting. We stayed in our motorhome and enjoyed a really peaceful night, this is a working farm so there was work going on all the time.
