    In the heart of this old centre located in a house made of exposed stonework, the Museum of Agricultural Tools recounts the development of agriculture in our region thanks to irrigation. Visitors can discover a varied collection of restored old tools used for growing cereals, vines and vegetables, some of them from the 19th century. These tools, made of iron and wood, were extensions of the hands of the women and men who got the best out of the earth.

    In her studio-gallery in Les Baux de Provence, the artist Marie-Hélène Sola presents 'Fragmentism', the pictorial movement she founded in the early 1990s. A descendent of Cubism, a synthesis of two worlds - abstract and figurative - a dialogue emerging from the use of form and colour, 'Fragmentism' gathers up movement in space that goes beyond the dimensions of the canvas. Sola has chosen to transfer the visitor's attention in order to provide an understanding of an entire composition and its characteristics.

    The poet Frédéric Mistral (1830-1914) lived in Maillane, where he composed all his work; in 1904 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He was also the founder of the Félibrige association. The house where he lived from 1876 until his death on 25 March 1914 has retained the authentic look of Mistral's time, thanks to restoration work carried out from 1992 to 1995 by the Historic Monuments service. The house became a museum in 1944, following the death of Mme Mistral in 1943.

    The Retro Museum is entirely dedicated to the reproduction of scenes from everyday life in the past. This nostalgic world can be accessed via the entrance to the La Crau Ecomuseum. André Avis is an enthusiastic collector. In 1987, in partnership with the Municipality, he decided to open a museum on the theme of old professions and tools. The museum has changed name since then, but its vocation remains the same, namely to preserve and pass on the memory of the Ancients to adults and primarily to children.

    The reputation of the painter Michel Jouenne is well established. He inaugurated his museum in May 2002, in a former Trinity Convent on the Saint-Rémy ring road. He chose this town because he had a house in the area for many years and it is a frequently visited town, passed through on the way to other artistic and tourist sites in the region. Michel Jouenne, who needs to be in touch with nature, has been inspired by Provence for many years.

    Visitors are often surprised by the imposing size and impressive Classical façade of this building, which was constructed in 1754. The pulpit jutting out from the pillar, the walnut woodwork of the ambulatory and the 19th century marble altar are all remarkable features which justify the Church's classification as a Regional Historic Monument.
