The Museum of Life In Days Gone By spans 3500 m² and houses over 60,000 items divided into around a hundred scenes of daily life. It illustrates 150 years of history, between 1800 and 1950. Delve into the lives of our ancestors, the beliefs of days gone by and the professions of yesteryear via reconstructions that illustrate antique items: lacemakers, shoemakers, witches’ abodes and more.
Audio guides are available, for no extra charge, for an audio commentary.
At the museum, you can eat at the “Chez Grand Mère” café-restaurant, which has two rooms, one of which can be privatised for groups, or at the “Café du Village”, which sells light refreshments.
The museum is open all year round.
