You’ll appreciate the Bassée-Montois Museum with a guided tour peppered with demonstrations and stories, telling rural life in the last century!
In the charming Le Montois village of Luisetaines, in the heart of the region, you’ll find the Montois Museum set up in the town’s former rectory.
Note the entrance porch, which dates from 1804.
Once inside, you’ll learn about the lives of your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents using tools and everyday objects displayed in 20 different thematic galleries.
These include grain processing, clothes from yesteryear, scale models, a dairy and religion… all gathered in a collection of 750 objects.
They are witnesses to history that is so close, yet so far…
And then, in an adjacent building, and thanks to the donation of a carriage carpenter, you will discover a whole range of tools that were used to build wheels for horse-drawn carriages, enriched with other objects that were used for handicraft woodworking.
Enjoy the guided tour with demonstrations and stories told by your passionate and impassioned guide! They’ll show you how old objects work. They may seem strange today, but our ancestors found these ingenious devices incredibly useful!
