L'Espace Arthur Masson, dedicated to the Belgian writer Arthur Masson, offers an original visit in the heart of the beautiful Viroin valley in Belgium.


The visit

Located at the entrance of the village, this former square has been turned into an immersive experience. At the centre is a stunning fountain, created by two brothers Yves and Claude Rahir. Around are three building which used to be tow's schools:

  • The Girls' school, now home to L'Ecole d'Autrefois (School of Yesteryear)
  • The Boys' school, no home to the Trignolles show
  • The preschool, now home to a welcome desk and a cafeteria, Chez Toine

Trignolles: an audio-guided tour/show

This light and sound show features 11 scenes, complete with dialogues in Walloon, presenting life in the Ardenne countryside between 1930s and 60s. The concept? Anecdotes and little life stories lived by the characters of the Toinade (written by Arthur Masson). A leaflet filled with games and notes is offered for this experience.


The school of yesteryear offers quite a unique experience...
School uniform on, you discover a classroom of times past: a blackboard wooden benches, slates, inkpots and pens... The teacher's there, ready to start today's lesson. A fun way to relive history.
