• Museum or Interpretation Centre

This exceptional museum in the province of Luxembourg presents archeology, art, civil and religious ethnography, industrial and popular art, folklore legends, regional furniture and traditions, all linked to the Gaume region.

The jacquemart

The museum is characterised by Its jacquemart (an animated, mechanised figure which strikes the hours on a bell with a hammer - usually part of clocks or clocktowers), one of the only 3 in Wallonia.

This character (163 cm, 75 kg) represents a Recollect monk (a minor branch of the Order of Friars Minor), a reference the community who lived here end of the 17th century to the end of the 18th century.

Set on the front of the tower, inaugurated in 1968, it was created by 2 Mons artists: Alfred Van den Brandt(who designed it) and Camille Brasseur (who built it out of red copper gilded with gold leaves).

Linked to the former clock's pendulum of the Gérouville church, it sounds every hour.
