With an extra 3000m², there is a new area to visit indoors and out over a 20 ha site. It is a major cultural site and a reference for enhancing the ethnological heritage. In the Bresse region, over a land with a wealth of cultural influences and famous for its art de vivre and gastronomy, the museum is an invitation to explore both contemporary and historic buildings and the meadows and wood of the estate. Landscape and environment, construction and habitat, cultivation and breeding, food and culinary traditions, costumes and finery... So many themes, so many exceptional collections, often on display for the first time. Countless objects have been researched and restored: enamels from the Bresse region, musical instruments, menus, cookery items and tableware... An illustration of the regional heritage and a doorway to universal cultural dimensions, they reflect the issues that society faces today: eating, producing and consuming... being and being noticed, constructing our identities... It gives everyone the chance to compare their present life with a common past. Opening from march to november, from monday to sunday 10h to 18h; closing day: tuesday. Entrance: 4€, PassMusées: 7€ (it permits to visit 4 museums in the departement and an old silk factory), free entrance for less than 26 years old and the first sunday of the month.

We passed by the museum by accident, and were stunned by the beautiful setting and the very impressive exhibits (including a huge temporary exhibition on enamels). Worth a visit!
