Ethnographic museum located in a stately home dating back to the 17th century. Its aim is to provide information on the importance of good practices in the rural environment for the protection of the planet. It has collections of tools used by crafts of the past.
The Museu de la Vida Rural is set up in an old stately home that dates back to the 17th century and was the property of the Carulla family.
Lluís Carulla (1904-1990) was an industrialist who was very involved in local life, to the point of becoming one of the most important patrons and driving forces of the Jaume I Foundation. This foundation was in charge of starting up the museum project in 1998, in order to keep alive the memory of traditional ways of life, tools and local customs.
The museum is organised into four large thematic sections. The first focuses on farming as an occupation, and shows all types of work and occupations related to farm and field, ethnographic documents and models. The home is the second theme, with the traditional quarters, furniture, and utensils coming from the manor itself.
The third stop is dedicated to non-agricultural occupations: an illustrated inventory of guild work, from blacksmiths to weavers. Finally, the fourth section highlights the natural and historic legacy of the region: wildlife, flora, timelines, urban maps of all periods, etc.
