Peasant and Craft Museum

Housed in a farm dating back to 1612 with a few Gothic elements from the original building (1507), this museum reconstructs the lifestyle of wealthy countrymen from the 17C. On the first Sunday of each month, lacemakers work in front of visitors. A temporary exhibition on country life and crafts is also organised every year.
