The Museum will be exceptionally closed on Friday 19 January 2024.
A museum, a bakery, captivating and tasty activities for young and old!
The first Fête du Blé et du Pain in1978 was beautiful and left bright memories for everyone. So much enthusiasm could not stop there and a band of enthusiast had the idea to extend it…
Why not to use the profits of the Fête du Blé et du Pain to create the Musée du pain et du blé where we would pay tribute in the ancestral gestures of the farmer, the miller and the baker, where we would collect the testimonies of the past and would preserve the old objects?
This is how these soft dreamers launched themselves wholeheartedly into the adventure, without having neither a place, nor a collection! But the enthusiasm, faith and passion raises mountains, and soon was bought the farm Panchaud (dating 1790), on the square of the Hôtel de Ville. The Association pour la Maison du Blé et du Pain was created in 1982. An appeal on the radio, some articles in the press, and soon objects arrived from everywhere in the canton…
After important renovation work of the building and the museography, the Maison du Blé et du Pain was opened in May, 1988, and inaugurated officially on April 16th, 1989. On that particular day, the peasant delegations of 26 cantons delivered symbolically their grain to the Maison du Blé et du Pain.
