What is a bisse? It is a low-gradient canal that carries water from streams and rivers to agricultural land, mainly meadows and vineyards, to irrigate them.
The museum traces the history of the bisses through the centuries. It is located in Botyre, along the cantonal road between Anzère and Sion. The 270 m2 of exhibition space on four levels offers visitors a real journey through time. Nearly 1,000 documents and hundreds of objects help us to understand why these irrigation channels were a determining factor in the development of the region for so long.
Opening hours : the Museum is currently closed till the end of the winter. It will reopen the 21st of April 2023.
