An immersive experience in Cevenol civilisation. A museum that relates Cevenol landscapes, history and memories.

The Maison Rouge is a former 19th-century silk-spinning mill that has been entirely restored and extended with a new gallery to house the new museum of the Cevenol valleys. Its almost 2,500 sq m of exhibition space present both the remarkable heritage of the Maison Rouge industrial site and the large collections of the Museum of the Cevenol Valleys.
Once you have crossed the vast gardens, the visit starts on the spinning-mill’s monumental staircase. It then proceeds in the prestigious historical building and its contemporary extension, revealing Cevenol identities of the past and present through its interpretation of the history of the Cévennes and its built landscape.
