prune museum

This is the world’s only prune museum. It is in the center of France’s plum-growing and prune-making region, which is between Toulouse and Bordeaux.

In his facinating review “And the prunes will set you free [exclamation point removed],” Kevin Pilley says “‘Awe is the only word for it. It is the only way you can describe the feeling you get when you find yourself in the presence of the world’s two oldest prunes. Seeing the Sistine Chapel or Standing front of the Mona Lisa is no less moving.”
