Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Walk into the old rebuilt village of Lagrasse : 300 m² of audio-guided visit, where the family collections of ancient objects lives (vineyard tools, antique crafts, dolls, jewellery, accessories …) Continue with a sound and light show : Surround yourself in 1900’s Corbieres during the four seasons, and learn about the everyday – life and the vineyard work. Finally, get on the old tramway of Aude, linking Lezignan-Corbieres to Saint-Pierre-des-Champs, through our new 4D show. It will take you to the life in the 1900’s in our beautiful region, with its surprising sensory effects (vibrating seats, rain, wind ...) A big and unique show in Languedoc Roussillon ! This adventure ends with a taste journey. Cyril, the owner, will share his passion with you : he is wine and vinegar maker. Around 60 traditional products (vinegars, wines, olive oils, and aperitifs) will lead you to unexpected tasting, such as a candied fig balsamic vinegar, or a Fruite Noir olive oil, very little produced in France. A treat from your eyes to your mouth, for the whole family !

Small family museum, created around the theme of wine, because the founders of the museum are wineries, nice and friendly. You discover the region at the beginning of last century, between land and sea, with vines as a backdrop. Collections of objects are also from the family and relive the past. This is a museum to visit that children enjoy, especially the show that revived the train linking Lagrasse in Narbonne, with vibrating seats. There are still many things to see, but the best thing is to go there.

Were driving around southern France and visited the village. After wandering around went in just to have a look and was warmly welcomed. We were told that out of season could look around exhibition for free and so did. Very interesting collection of dolls, children's toys and jewellery. Also upstairs fascinating insight into grape varieties and where they are grown. At the end we had a taste of some wine and vinegar and it was certainly good enough to buy and bring home. My wife is still enjoying the superb wine vinegar (tyme). My son despatched the wine shortly after we gave him it! If in the village a visit really is a must - superb hospitality, interesting items and lovely produce.

Great place to visit and discover Lagrasse as it was back in the 1900s. Very friendly staff. Several languages available via headphones. You can also buy some really nice vinegars and wines. Upstairs are some wonderful 3D models of the town and surrounding countryside, including many of the Cathar castles to be found in this region.

The town of Lagrasse is charming and well worth the visit itself. Whilst there, pop into this little family-run museum. The owner's mother collected all the displays over many years and they have been organised into displays showing life in a typical French provincial town at the turn of the 20th century. It is quite slick, with an audio tour in many languages, very interesting, well organised and enjoyable, with helpful, friendly staff.
Then, at the end, you find yourself in a bar. The owner makes wine and artisan vinegars. His father makes olive oil and you get a chance to try them all out (and buy some as well, if you like!), as well as other local produce. The wine is good, as is the vinegar, and the olive oil and all the stuff they produce. It seems the more you try, the more you want. Hence, best to leave the car behind.

This is a small museum set up by a family explaining life in the French countryside and village around 1900. Cost €3 average for our group of 8. A lovely sound track and tableaux of life over the seasons, no computer gadgetry but the 4 sern it all tech savvy teenagers in our party loved it. At the end we tasted the wines and amazing vinegars and couldn't resist buying some although there was no hard sell. The staff / guide was lovely and helpful and we all enjoyed an hour there. Lagrasse was very pretty, we swam in the river nearby as recommended by the museum staff as the river in town was busy and had what we all agreed the best day of our weeks holiday.
