The Folk museum is located on the main Market Square behind the ancient Halle (that is now the entry to the grotto). The large sign on the museum simply says, ?Musée? and there is not much indication of what is inside. We?ve been to Domme several times so were looking for things to do and noticed the sign so decided to see what was inside.

Good decision. It?s a collection of area and town history with wooden sabots, old tools, diaramas of long-ago life, coins, stamps, dolls . . . and generally everything local and historic. It was interesting and fun.

The actual name of the museum is L'Oustal du Perigord, Musee d'Arts et Traditions Populaire

Address: Place de la Halle

    Nice that they have a 1671 edition of Don Quixote, in Spanish but printed in Brussels (which at the time was still under Spanish rule).
