No the Tobacco Museum isn’t intended to promote tobacco; nor is it meant for smokers alone! Its collections, which are unique in Europe, evoke the saga of a plant with an amazing destiny, sometimes blessed and sometimes cursed; originating and used in America more than 3,000 years ago before conquering Africa and then the world. Its modern manner of consumption has been vilified, but it has left its mark on every civilization sociologically, economically, culturally, artistically, and politically. Discover, in our auditorium and through our exhibitions of rare artefacts, this universal fact of social life, the history of tobacco’s use, and objects related to its consumption. The Tobacco Museum is located in the Maison Peyrarède, also known as the Château Henri IV. The architecture of this building was constructed in the 17th century in the heart of the historic centre of Bergerac.
