The Perry Museum is the only Museum in France dedicated to this sparkling and delicious drink, symbolic of the Mortainais and Domfrontais regions.
What is Perry?
Perry is obtained through the natural fermentation of juice from Perry pears grown on one-hundred-year-old trees. This rare product plays on a sweet-acidic balance enhanced by a touch of astringency. Its fruity bubbles can be enjoyed at any time of the day ... in moderation of course!

A recreational and informative visit!
The museum has been situated in Barenton since 1983 and is the western gateway to the Normandy-Maine Regional Nature Park and Geopark. It is housed in stone, cob and timber-framed farm outbuildings, typical of the Normandy countryside.
The Perry Museum has some amazing displays: from impressive historical pieces used to crush fruit, such as the long-armed press or granite mill to modern tools and processes. You will relive the transformations of the industry through history up to present day.
Come and hang out and relax with family or friends on a fun course in the green and peaceful setting of the conservatory orchard, rich in over a hundred varieties of pears and apples. Take the opportunity to taste local farm products and find out about the events, exhibitions and workshops taking place throughout the year!
