Museum of Walloon Life

Recommended
This museum is devoted to popular arts and folklore in the Walloon region. It is housed in a former abbey of the Friars Minor, and includes a puppet theatre and rooms devoted to traditional life. Visitors learn about bygone ways of life through interior reconstructions and workshops. In the room devoted to popular beliefs and magic, there are "nail oaks" where the sick would nail their bandages to get rid of their conditions.
