  • Museum & discovery

In this museum, located in the province of Hainaut, time seems to have stopped. More than 40 rooms tell us the life of yesteryear at a time when everything was different.

From the old class to the mill, through the works of the land, and the fields, the forge, the dairy and the craftsmen's workshops, all the life of the past is discovered through tools and machines worn by so many gestures a thousand times repeated.
