The Rice Museum

Ideally located at the heart of the Camargue, in the middle of the paddy fields, the Rice Museum is a place imbued with history.

At the Rice Museum, you will be welcomed by Robert Bon who will talk to you about the history of rice growing. You will discover unique machines that will amaze both young and old, models explaining how rice is grown, the rice grower's trade and the Camargue's fauna and flora. The visit will end with a tasting of organic and natural products. Before leaving, take a few moments to visit the museum shop, which sells souvenirs, books and local products.

Every year, the 'Fêtes des Prémices du Riz' take place in mid-September. Whole districts, villages, associations and families celebrate the rice harvest with in procession of floats carrying the rice ambassadress.
