About us

Welcome to the Hat Museum, guardian of the memory of two centuries of the hat industry in the Haute-Vallée de l’Aude.

A heritage to preserve

Unique, world-renowned know-how

The Esperaza Hat Museum brings together the period machines and various equipment which constituted the manufacturing lines from the felt bell to the finished hat. More than 150 prestigious hairstyles are on display there, made for the cinema in particular. On your arrival, you will be able to watch a video film which retraces the 25 steps necessary to create a very high quality felted hat.
