Folklore Museum

This museum occupies the Spanish-style "Tournai House" with façades from 1673. Its collections recall the arts, traditions and everyday life of Tournai and its area. Its reconstructed tavern, hosier's "balotil" workshop with its knitting machine and craft room, recall ancient crafts. On the first floor, note the carnival room and pharmacy and a model of 17C Tournai on the second floor.
