Rural History Interpretation Centre - Montmorillonnais Ecomuseum
The Juillé Farm is located 3 km from the centre of Saulgé near the Gartempe Valley. The farm buildings (from the 19th, 20th C) are representative of rural architecture in the South of Vienne, situated at the crossroads of northern and southern France. Part of the farm has been preserved in its original state.
Since July 2008 the Ecomuseum has been open in Juilé, which illustrates the history of the rural Montmorillon life through its gastronomy, agriculture and local produce. A valuable way for locals and visitors to understand the region.
Audio guides in English and French cover two aspects of life: everyday life, and socio-economic history.
