Petit Futé's opinion on FORGES OF PYRENEES - UNFORGETTABLE VILLAGE

Vintage plate 2020

This collection of 56 looms and more than 4,000 tools is the largest collection of the looms of the past. The Forges of Pyrenees are like a history book. The museum invites you to enter into the secret of the old trades grouped around several themes: the travelling trades, those of agriculture and breeding, domestic life, housing and clothing. The animated barns invite you to discover the various living workshops around the village square: the blacksmith, the 1900 school, the bread oven, the swift forge... You will discover the last working swift forge, classified as a historical monument, which has kept its former appearance and its dark and mysterious atmosphere. 450 years old, with a proven existence since the Middle Ages, the Forge de Montgailhard is at the origin of the manufacture of iron bars. Not to be missed, the demonstration of the functioning of the hammer forge. You will also share a moment of emotion at the Ages of Life space where Baptistou tells his great-granddaughter about his life as an Ariegeois. An unforgettable journey through time... in an unforgettable village. Here, everything is designed to make you feel welcome: a large car park and a free kennel, a picnic area by a lake, a play area for children, an auditorium for your events and even an art gallery. Latest novelties: discovery trail to be explored with the family and the completely renovated iron museum.

Un très chouette site que je conseille de visiter par beau temps car il y a beaucoup de choses qui se passent dehors. Nous avons notamment assisté à plusieurs ateliers (fabrication de pain, sabotier, ...). Super souvenir du musée des vieux métiers, qui rassemble plus de 6000 objets si je me rappelle bien.

le musée est génial avec tous ces vieux métiers expliqués en images et avec les outils; les démonstrations des forgerons et toutes leurs explications sont très intéressantes, le boulanger nous fait un historique du métier; et on se replonge dans une classe il y a au moins cinquante ans en arrière; c'est vraiment un très bon moment
