Compa

Interesting
A superbly restored SNCF rotunda is home to the Conservatoire du machinisme et des pratiques agricoles (COMPA), a museum dedicated to agriculture. Tools and machinery (tractors, seed drills, harvesters etc) shown in a huge hall, followed by an extremely well done section devoted to changes in the rural world, after which some dioramas will introduce you to agricultural progress over the centuries and the continents. A fascinating museum, with a multimedia cultural space, Cybercomp@.
