  1. 1 Train à vapeur

    An original journey by steam train

    Enjoy a unique journey on a real steam train with family with the Chemin de Fer à Vapeur des 3 Vallées in Treignes. The steam starts, the whistle sounds, the beauty of the landscapes… Not to mention a visit to the museum with its old steam locomotives, diesel rail cars, etc.
  2. 2 Jardins d O

    The invigorating jardins d’O

    Discover the magnificent jardins d’O in Nismes municipal park aboard an original paddle steamer. The picture-postcard landscapes of the Viroin Valley pass before your eyes in the heart of unspoilt, calm and peaceful natural setting. Plus, there is mini golf nearby if you fancy it.
  3. 3 Espace Arthur Masson

    The 30s school at Espace Arthur Masson

    At the École d'Autrefois in Treignes, we line up two by two, we sit down with our arms crossed behind our wooden desk, we dip our pen in the inkwell and we listen to the teacher to avoid wearing the dunce’s hat ;) 'Trignolles' show-trail through the work of Arthur Masson, Giant Cluedo, etc.
  4. Ecomusée du Viroin 4

    Professions of our ancestors

    Cooper, clog maker, cobbler, washer – immerse yourself in the craftsmanship of the villages in the Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse region between the 18th and early-20th centuries. The Viroin eco-museum encourages reflection about rural life and the idea of environmental transition.
