Museum of Ocher in Saint Georges sur la Prée

Have a good time with the family at the Ocher Museum in Saint Georges sur la Prée, 16 km from the Hotel Continental in Vierzon.

At the same time color, matter, industry, ocher has many faces and a long history.

8 centuries of history around ocher and 4 atmospheres

The shop of the color merchant: reconstruction of a shop of a color merchant of the early twentieth century (yellow pigments, red, green, blue ....)

The art gallery is open throughout the year to many artists exhibiting their work: painters, sculptors, ceramists ...

The attic of the museum: evocation of the habitat and the life of the village over the last 2 centuries.

The history of ocher: the story around the exploitation of ocher in St Georges on the Prée. Saint-Georges-sur-la-Prée is well known since the early Middle Ages for its ocher quarries, whose transport was by boat.

The museum is open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, from 2pm to 6pm and by appointment the other days.
