Lavender or Lavandin? A big difference!Älgbert Elgson
Dieser Artikel ist auch in Deutsch verfügbar.
The Musée de la Lavande is a small privately owned museum about the production of lavender and lavender oil.
The history of lavender and Provence is brought closer to the visitor with the help of many exhibits, but also films and an audio guide.
The museum also explains the difference between real lavender and cheaper lavandin. The owners of the museum mainly cultivate real lavender in their fields and process it into products that they also sell in the adjacent shop.
The opening times can be found on the official homepage.
The connected shop also has its own homepage. The products can also be purchased in the online shop.
The small museum is very informative. An audio guide is available to guide you through the exhibition described in French.
The first introduction and explanation about lavender takes place directly at the ticket counter. The following film shows further aspects of lavender oil production – today and then. The exhibition is well prepared and informative. The pieces on display range from large stills to small perfume bottles from different eras.
Even in the connected shop, even the most amateurish questions are answered patiently and with joy. You don’t have the feeling that only something is to be sold.
