History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Take a trip back the classroom at Musee De L'ecole. This small center explores 19th-century France's education system through information displays and historical artifacts in a preserved classroom setting. Examine informative posters and classroom equipment as you compare today's educational establishments with those of yore. Don't miss the opportunity to sit at an old-fashioned desk and practice your handwriting thanks to a quill and inkwell. Those unpracticed in the art of calligraphy may want to avoid wearing white. Put Musee De L'ecole and other Carcassonne attractions into our Carcassonne holiday builder app, and watch your holiday take shape.
