Educational workshops

Educational workshops for children

During school holidays (Zone A: Nantes, Rennes, Caen, Clermont Ferrand, Grenoble, Lyon, Toulouse, Montpellier and Metz-Nancy education authorities), we offer cheese- and butter-making workshops on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 11.30am.

After a tour of the museum, it’s time for the children to get involved. Dressed in a smock and hairnet, our apprentice butter and cheese makers will discover all the secrets of milk processing and receive a certificate confirming the skills they have learned.
