Musée du Vêtement Provençal
     
This museum is located in an 18th century mill that ceased operation after the terrible frost of 1956 which destroyed a good number of the region's olive trees. The permanent exhibit is made up of over 200 well-preserved specimens of men's, women's and childrens' clothing and accessories from daily life presented in display cases. The historical period covered runs from 1800 to 1915, a period which proved fatal for Provensal clothing as it was stifled by Parisian fashion. An added attraction is provided by the mill itself, with its interior architecture, six vaults of presses, grindstones, and kitchen, not to mention an array of outstanding collection pieces (bridal gown, communion outfit, etc.).
