    I love ! A big step back in time in this museum with all the old trades and businesses of the last centuries. I liked the store of marbles, caramels has a franc and roudoudous in the large glass jars as in our memories of kids. Maybe a little mistral-style melody gaining in background is missing which could be nice. I recommend this museum for a little step back in time.
