Musée de l'École Rurale d'Auvergne
A museum with class ! Write with a feather and violet ink. Times for black smocks and wooden soled shoes the school uniform of the 30's. Exhibition : objects of school children, clothing, toys and photos of the era. Playtime : old games !
To better immerse oneself in the atmosphere of the 1930's school era, and after a visit to the cloakroom where children and adults alike dress in black or grey coats and high or low galoshes, everyone enters the classroom, an authentic 1930's class. An age-appropriate commentary on the history of Jules Ferry's school precedes the page with purple ink... The animator plays her role as a teacher from the time of the "Hussars of the Republic" and very quickly the visitors get into the game in this classroom which smells of chalk, real wood and old paper. The visit ends with a page of writing in pen and violet ink.
In the exhibition room adjoining the classroom, you will discover a wealth of treasures. Objects that speak to you: from the celluloid baby doll to slate pencils and various collections of blotters, notebook covers and class photos, all these objects bear witness to the progress made since that time.
