    • Fous de Garonne, the interpretation center of the river and its valley:

      Did you know that every year or so, Couthures sur Garonne is transformed into Couthures sous Garonne? But don't panic! Here, in case of flood, you hang your furniture on the ceiling, you moor your boat on the balconies and you let the fishes swim in your living room. Nothing unusual in the most charming village of our territory, whose unavoidable visit will surely make you too, true "Fous de Garonne".

      When Garonne makes its show - video mapping :
      No, carp are not dumb! And if you doubt it, it's because you haven't yet experienced the extraordinary discovery of the video mapping of Fous de Garonne. This digital magic trick, between dream and reality, will immerse you in the life of Couthuraine and its surprising history. To the rhythm of the river's floods, live a funny, surreal and infinitely poetic experience.

      Virtual reality: Flood alert!
      Put on your virtual reality headset and embark with the Couthures rescuers to live, in total immersion, the great flood of December 2019. Aboard a rescue boat, you will be able to follow, as close as possible to the action, the interventions of these everyday heroes, always ready when Garonne is angry.

      Nature Hut: the natural ecosystem of the Garonne
      The navigator Yves Parlier is the godfather of this room, all dressed in wood, where you can discover the fauna of the river in 3D projection. A show that highlights the insects, mammals and fish of the Garonne, hosts of an ecosystem of great richness and fragility.

      Aquarium & touch pool :
      Here we go, Garonne is at it again and the kitchen is under water. The fishes evolve between atypical reefs made of a table, a fridge and a television. An amazing aquarium, visible from the rue de La Cave, a stone's throw from the banks of the river.

    There is some English translation but does benefit from having someone with you who can help with the explanations. Good use of video to explain.

    Couthures-sur-Garonne is a lovely little village near Marmande in the Lot-et-Garonne department. The village itself is worthy of a brief visit, but be sure to stop by the Gens de Garonne exhibition...
