Guardian of the memory of men and traditions, the Ecomusée de la Forêt d'Orient will make you discover rural life through its trades and its habitat. The Ecomuseum is a place of welcome, information and reflection dedicated to the richness of our unique regional heritage

The first site, the Maison des Jours et des Champs (House of Days and Fields) gathers a collection of agricultural equipment from the last centuries and explains the rural life of the past. You will see the evolution of the equipment: pears, ploughs, tractors... In barns relocated on the site, you can discover the workshops of the carpenter, saddler, tailpiece maker, winemaker and many others
Along the way, you will also be shown reconstructions of the traditional habitat of our countryside, an old classroom and a hairdressing salon typical of the 1950s, testimony to the style present at the beginning of the 20th century.
The second site "La boutique du charron", 200 metres from the first and in the heart of the village, is the original workplace of one of the last wheelwrights in the area. Left in its original state, the machines are still working. You will discover there the indispensable equipment for the maintenance of ploughs and other agricultural tools but also the equipment for horses

Guided tours will allow you to discover a safeguarded past, thanks to restored collections of local agricultural machinery, traditional tools of trades such as the tailpiece maker, the blacksmith or the marshal. A past to the rhythm of the horses' footsteps, and the hammer blows on the anvil. 3 centuries of exhibition to understand that we have not invented anything, but only improved what the ancients had created.
