Le Carton Voyageur- Musée de la Carte Postale of Baud!!

I have written on this museum before in my blog ; however, today was heritage days in France or journées du patrimoine and entrance was free, and we took advantage to come back again, It is a nice detour me think, Baud is just up the alley from me on the D768 and we have come here often.

The Quatro is the new cultural hub of Baud. This brings the Museum in as the Le Carton Voyageur- Musée de la Carte Postale ; a museum of postcards, The property occupies an area of 310 m2 of which 220 m2 of exhibition spaces, in addition to the 20 m2 of reserve.

As basically this was a chance to have interior pictures of the new place as the previous location in city center Baud could not find the pictures, Therefore, as not to repeat the text will be short.

It is a very nice interesting museum showing traditions and costumes of Brittany at their best even model dresses and ceramics as well as a great introduction to postcards. It is worth a detour and even great for me as in my other life was a postcard collector and still almost a thousand left of many countries in my vault.
