On Avignon’s eastern outskirts, well off the city’s tourist track, this “living museum” offers visitors a total immersion into indigenous Provençal fruits and vegetables. The museum itself boasts interactive sensory exhibits, teaching visitors about local agriculture, from seed to plate, as well as sustainability, nutrition, and regional cuisine. Outdoors, the vegetable gardens and orchards are dotted with more than 100 fruit trees. There are plenty of spots to kick back in the shade. Take bus no. 4, which departs from just outside of Avignon’s city center train station.
