Musée du Quercorb - Puivert

The Quercorb Museum, with its attractive displays, allows you to discover this fascinating little region. Visual and sound exhibits recreate everyday life in Quercorb at the beginning of the 20th century.

The "instrumentarium" is resonant with music and displays nine musical instruments of the middle ages that have been reconstructed on the model of the sculptures of musicians in Puivert Castle.

You can use headphones to listen to 9 Occitan troubadour "cansos" while you follow the words and medieval music reconstructed on goatskin parchment.

In the museum orchard there are displays including a still and a collection of objects related to harvesting fruit and processing it into fruit brand...
  The Quercorb museum is devoted to the history and economy of the Quercorb area. Two historical orientations are developed. In the first part, there is a presentation of daily life at the beginning of the 20th century in the Quercorb.

The first part of the visit is to the reconstitution of a kitchen, element around which lives revolved at that period in history. The presentation is surprisingly ‘alive' thanks to sound effects. Local trades are also presented in the replica of the Nébias forge, the explanation of jet work (to make black jewellery which was very fashionable), a turner's workshop and a display of horn-comb manufacture.

In the second part, the museum explains the art of the troubadours and their profane medieval music. The Instrumentarium reproduces the Musicians' Room in the keep of the castle of Puivert. The sculptures of the eight musicians have been copied so that you may observe the medieval instruments more closely...

The reception was very pleasant, the hostess is very friendly, it's like being welcomed by friends. The sangria was delicious. We ordered two combination platters, for my husband veal with morel sauce, a true pleasure and for me a stuffed squid in aioli tomato sauce served with french fries, green beans, tomatoes provencale, a real treat! If then the dessert ..... these alone are worth the trip! Very good value for money and great generosity and much more ... We have enjoyed!!!!"
