Discover the Pays Lauragais through its four emblematic themes: the Canal du Midi, the pastel, the wind and the treasures of the region.

A fun and interactive exhibition accessible to the whole family to discover and learn while having fun!

Five discovery spaces to explore and experience open every day of the year:

- The Canal du Midi, a major element of local heritage built by Pierre Paul Riquet in the XNUMXth century, reveals all its secrets here...

- Pastel, from its harvest to its dyeing: you will know everything about this dye plant with multiple uses which made the wealth of Lauragais, Pays de Cocagne in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries

-The soil: attics of agricultural production, the hillsides of Lauragais offer a rich heritage and ancestral know-how which are revealed to you here, without forgetting the secrets of its cassoulet!

- The winds: Autan, Cers, Bordales… discover the winds that blow over our land of a thousand hills, the methods of measuring their strength and the devices for transforming their energy

- A projection room to immerse yourself in our "little Tuscany" and the varied landscapes of Haute-Garonne.

A QR code, present on each element of the exhibition, provides access to additional information in French, English and Spanish.

Guided tours (paying) for adult and school groups are available by appointment.
