About

In the charming Le Montois village of Luisetaines, in the heart of the region, you’ll find the Bassée-Montois Eco Museum set up in the town’s former rectory.

Note the entrance porch, which dates from 1804.
Once inside, you’ll learn about the lives of your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents using tools and everyday objects displayed in 20 different thematic galleries.
These include grain processing, clothes from yesteryear, scale models, a dairy and religion… all gathered in a collection of 750 objects.
They are witnesses to history that is so close, yet so far…

And then, in an adjacent building, and thanks to the donation of a carriage carpenter, you will discover a whole range of tools that were used to build wheels for horse-drawn carriages, enriched with other objects that were used for handicraft woodworking.

To help you understand the usefulness and ingenuity of certain objects, booklets with comments are available in each room.

Special events are also scheduled throughout the season: apple juice pressing, old-fashioned threshing, wood workshop, etc.
For more information, please contact the email address or the tourist partners.
