Between downhill waterslides, football matches and petanque tournaments, you'll quickly back to childhood while staying with family at the campsite 5 stars Les Mimosas in Herault. If you want your children to take with them unforgettable memories of their vacation in the Mediterranean, take them in an unusual and unique museum in Occitan: Lego museum or palace Model of Valras-Plage.
The most nostalgic among us, those who spent hours playing with toy soldiers and assemble Lego before the emergence of electronic devices, know that the simplest games are often the most rewarding to awaken the senses and stimulate children's creativity. So much so that they can become works of art and have a place in a museum.
At about 20 minutes drive from the campsite Les Mimosas, the Lego museum offers a surprise: the largest concentration of Lego pieces France. Otherwise known as the Toy Museum or Palace of the model, the Lego Museum is the opportunity to discover or rediscover the wonderful constructions that dream of generations.
