Why take advantage?

Our museum takes you on a journey into the past, where our team of volunteer animators bring back to life the trades and activities of yesteryear through demonstrations that recreate the rural life of our region.

Housed in an old farmhouse, we have a vast exhibition area on our premises, organized into different workshops: beekeepers, string makers, basket makers, blacksmiths, clog makers, carpenters, embroiderers, weavers, wool and linen spinners, wood turners, wooden spoon carvers, potters, seafaring crafts... These activities are presented in our 2,500 square-meter park, with outdoor areas featuring the bread oven, wash house, wine press, clogmaker's hut, medicinal garden...

What's more, every afternoon, a special event focuses on local know-how that has been saved from oblivion. You'll find the calendar of events on our website. Our animators are eager to share their knowledge with you in a friendly atmosphere.

Allow two hours for the visit.

You can also have a great time at the Breton games park (free admission) located near the Museum!
