Ham-sur-Heure Castle and its Crafts and Rural Life Museum

Description

The Musée de la Vie Rurale et Artisanale is located in the square tower of the Château d'Ham-sur-Heure. It comprises ten rooms that serve as a testament to our region, by bringing ancient professions from the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries back to life. During their visit, guests will be guided by volunteers to discover typical craftsmanship from the former ‘bourk’ of Ham-sur-Heure, such as the production of balls of wool, bobbins of lace, nails and glassware. You will also learn about other ancient crafts and rural professions. An area is dedicated to the Saint Roch march in Ham-sur-Heure, with models in costumes and uniforms from the period representing this UNESCO-recognised aspect of local folklore.
