Museum from another era
Attraction touristique de la Région Wallonne avec deux soleils
Tourist attraction of the Walloon Region awarded two suns status
Housed in the old school facing the Church of St. Christopher, the Museum of Life of Yesteryear offers seven rooms that testify to the way of living in the countryside a hundred years ago: in Clementine's kitchen, here is how to eat, make bread, cook, laundry, before electricity...
Next to it, the “santons” (figurines) illustrate the life of the village with the different trades; costumes, objects and documents testify to the associative life.
Agriculture to the rhythm of draft horses, the extraction of tufa, the know-how of craftsmen: it is a dive into the world of our great-grandparents. The history of our villages is evoked until the turmoil of the two wars. The classroom and its wooden benches excite visitors... and the village café, so friendly, ends the visit pleasantly.
The Museum hosts exhibitions of artists that are renewed every two months.
