MAISON DU MAÎTRE DE DIGUES
An ecomuseum to help you understand everything about the Marais Poitevin! The dyke, the landscape, life in days gone by. 1 hour visit, rain permitting. Game booklet for 7-12 year-olds.
The Maison du Maître de Digues is an emblematic site in the Marais Poitevin: it was here, in the 17th century, that water management was organised.
The Marais Poitevin is more than just Green Venice!
Visit our exhibition on the dyke and you'll realise that there are a multitude of landscapes in the Marais Poitevin. Take the time to watch the dike evolve with the seasons, listen to the sounds of the marsh, put yourself in the shoes of a recalou... You'll discover the difference between a wet marsh and a dry marsh.
Then, take a step back in time: enter the former staff accommodation converted into an eco-museum. Discover the home, job and daily life of the Maître de Digues, an indispensable figure in water management and marsh maintenance.
Allow around 1 hour for the visit, rain permitting.
Picnic tables on site.
English or German translation available.
