Industrial activity in the Apt area is characterised by three main natural resources - ochre to make colour pigment, clay to make faience ware and architectural ceramics, and fruit orchards to produce the fruit for the candied fruit industry.

Around these three industries, several related activities, such as packaging, mechanics, and sulphur extraction, have sprung up to work with these three main products. The museum's collections preserve the memory of all those who worked in processing the natural resources of the region. The museum is in the former Marliagues candied fruit factory.
Free for under 18's.
