What is it you do?
“Our museum features 85 scenes of traditional crafts, plus an impressive collection of tools and anvils from the last century. We have displays of over 150 mannequins representing the various trades and professions in their working environment: the smith, the cobbler, the schoolteacher, etc. We also offer the visitor a superb collection of paintings of rural life as depicted by regional artists.”
What prompted you to seek "Famenne-Ardenne UNESCO Global Geopark Partner" status?
“We are aiming for quality tourism and becoming a Geopark Famenne-Ardenne partner is an opportunity to improve our visitor experience, develop more sustainable practices and appeal to visitors more attuned to cultural tourism.”
What is your approach to sustainable development and environment friendly practices?
“We have installed LED lighting throughout the museum. Our aim is to show not only tourists but also, and perhaps most importantly, the inhabitants of this region, how our parents and grandparents lived and worked. It is important to keep that memory alive. We work primarily in partnership with the Domaine des Grottes de Han and so subscribe to and respect the values they operate by as a green and sustainable tourist attraction.”
