Placed in the former(old) abbey Benedictine of the XIth century at the heart of the historic center of Meymac, the Museum, the place of discovery and knowledge, establish(constitute) a fascinating introduction in the history(story) of the Tray(Plateau) of Millevaches and his(her) inhabitants, times(weathers) were the most moved(put) the back in our days. A route(course) on three levels, will allow you to discover this territory by admiring, among others: funeral furniture (medieval sarcophaguses and funeral safes(chests) Gallo-Roman), palaeolithic and Neolithic tools (double-sided, polished axes), objects of the Gallo-Roman site of Coaches and video in 3D of monuments, but also testimonies of the local rural life of the environment(middle) of the XIXth at the end of the XXth century (tools, utensils, toys, musical instruments, furniture, clothes, reconstruction of the inside of a farm...). Didactic panels(signs) at various levels of reading, interactive terminals, videos, complete objects of exposition and propose questionings on the future and the dynamics of this territory. This whole collection, rich and varied, was collected(harvested) by Marius Vazeilles (on 1881 - 1973) who was an ecologist prematurely and a humanist who worked on the improvement of the human condition on the Tray(Plateau) of Millevaches. He(it) was so forest, archaeologist and political activist as delegated by the Popular Front. The museum plays boatman's role between the history(story) past and present of the life of this territory and addresses so as much the informed and scientific amateurs as in greenhorns, to the adults and to the children. Within the framework of the valuation of the territory, the Association " Fondation Marius Vazeilles " proposes all year round diverse activities to discover this territory and its wealth: taken(brought) out, exhibitions(exposures), conferences, tales, studios(workshops)....
