This house by the river is dedicated to the memory of the Meuse villages and forgotten trades. A real journey through time for all generations.
The collections are arranged in three themes:
- River life as lockmasters would have known in the 19th and 20th century (work, techniques and tools to open the locks manually included)
- Rural life with over 40 trades defined by tools used by our grandparents and great grandparents, real wood, stone and metal artisans
- Industrial life, with a retrospective of the main factories that used to exist in the region ( The Crayons Gilbert of Hastière, Céramanova from Waulsort)
A museum for everyone
Adults and children will all find something of interest in this welcoming house - nostalgy, memories or anecdotes on how clever our ancestors were.
Guided tours can be organised should you wish to learn more about the museum's collections. These include demonstrations of the tools. A pedagogic leaflet (with games, drawings and explanations) is available for primary school before they visit.
