Woodworking trades and heritage centre

  • Woodworking trades and heritage centre

    This museum, unique in France, is a living space where machines are started up for visitors several times a day by enthusiastic and fascinating guides. Here you will explore a sawmill with a “haut fer”, a steam engine from 1896, a sharpening workshop from the 1930s, a cheese-box workshop, a tool handle copying machine, a complete clog workshop.

    One area is devoted to wooden toys (830 items), and an educational zone allows visitors to learn about the life cycle of the tree and its environment. A whole floor of the museum is dedicated to woodworking professions from the pre-mechanisation era, including lumberjacks, cartwrights, clog-makers, peasants, coopers, turners, joiners, basket-makers, carpenters, and many more.
