Musée des Gueules Rouges

Museum, History, Sciences and technology in Tourves
  • Green Provence, a region with solid traditions of bauxite mining, had a duty to set up a site commemorating an activity that brought it wealth. So Tourves has opened this museum with its red colours. This is a modern and entertaining site, giving a glimpse of the miners lives, the mining galleries and the entire process leading to the end product, namely, aluminium.

  • Originating in the extraction of bauxite, the red dust covered the miners' faces… An influential period in the history of the Var which the Museum explores from every angle. A careful museography, an interactive trail, a living reconstruction, a tour will not leave you indifferent to this poignant story.
