    • The Museum of Cork and Stopper retraces the history of the exploitation of cork oak and the cork industry in Albret and more particularly in Mézin.


      The only science and technology museum in the entire Lot-et-Garonne, it exhibits the cork stopper manufacturing process in the 19th and 20th centuries.


      Labeled Museum of France, its unique collections come directly from local businesses. Cork has multiple and incredible properties that make it an exceptional material used both in fashion and in aeronautics.

    Small museum to visit but if you want something not outdoor and your nearby it is also worth a visit. They have souvenirs and video showing area and voice recordings too. Kids loves the machine exhibitions.
