The Fourneau Saint-Michel estate, nestled in the Saint Hubert forest, is home to 2 exceptional sites: the Museum of Country Life and the Iron Museum.

The Museum of Country Life in Wallonia

Quite a sight! Step into a 19th-century hamlet, typical of the Walloon countryside. Each sweet little house presents a scene from times past: kitchens with a wood-oven fire, artisans' workshops, vintage furniture and tools...

The Iron Museum

To learn more about this industry, which really bloomed in the 17th and 18th century. Interactive animations, screenings, touch screens... offer an immersive insight into metal casting and how industrialisation changed everyday life.

Nature all around

Beautifully cared for, the estate offers exceptional biodiversity,  including some endangered species which are there given a chance to expand again.
