Saddlery workshop - Exhibition
Rebuilt as it was in Luc between 1860 and 1952. Numerous tools, labels and registers bear witness to yesterday's economy. A fun exhibition with drawers to open and sound samples to listen to... Visit of the museum on request.
The Rolland family have been saddlers in Luc-en-Diois from father to son from 1860 to 1952.
Max, the last saddler of the village, closed his shop as tractors replaced draft horses on a large scale...
Long after he had stopped working, he had left all his tools untouched. As if they were waiting for your visit to tell you all about this meticulous leather work…
His workshop has been faithfully recreated in order to show the timeless gestures, between yesterday and today.
This is also an opportunity to imagine what was life in Luc-en-Diois during the first half of the 20th century, then thriving with numerous shops and a freight train connexion.
The exhibition is accessible to all, including people with reduced mobility. It is both educational and fun with the chance to explore the old tools kept in secret drawers, answer riddles and listen to ambiant sounds recreating yesteryear's atmosphere.
