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...More

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.

I was never a fan of prunes until I discovered the Pruneaux d'Agen. They are quite unlike any other prune I have ever eaten. A visiting friend said that in Canada she can't eat even a tiny piece of a prune without major intestinal woes....More

This museum was fascinating and the value adding that they do to prunes is exceptional. We purchased product which we are enjoying . Prunes in whiskey with orange we highly recommend.

We became intrigued by the magnificent fat black prunes - Pruneaux d'Agen - at the markets in the Dordogne region and found that there was a museum in the heart of the plum growing areas between the Dordogne and the Lot. It's best to make...More
