Museum of the city of Bergerac, wine and inland waterways

The city's museum of art and history.

Welcome to the Museum of the City of Bergerac, wine and inland waterways

The Museum of the city of Bergerac, wine and inland waterways is located in a half-timbered building that was once a tavern on the port of Bergerac , in an area where the river and vineyards have always been major assets for development.

It consists of 3 levels, each dedicated to a theme.
On the ground floor, the museum tells the story of the town through photographic documents, rare archives and selected objects from its medieval origins to the 19th century.

The second floor is dedicated to the wines of the Bergerac region and the history of winegrowing, with a collection of farming tools and objects from the region's former cooperage workshops and wine cellars. You'll discover the evolution of the great vineyards that surround the town, and the history of the great wine trade to the British Isles and Northern Europe that kept the town's economy going.

The second floor is devoted to the Dordogne's inland waterway, with its typical flat-bottomed boats, the gabares, and the bridges crossing the river. Models, old photographs and woodworking tools are all on display.

Outside the museum, on the archaeological forecourt of the former Piles mill site, an exhibition dedicated to the history of the Grands-Moulins de Bergerac is open to the public.
