In a magnificent 16 century Castle farm, the Ecomuseum of the Viroin is a link between past, present and futur. The museum focuses on the social and economical history of the beautiful Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse region. It tells the story of men and women, craftmen, farmers and villagers...

The permanent exhibition offers an insight into traditionnal rural trades and features hundreds of tools used by carpenters, clog makers, coopers, blacksmiths, cartwrights and cobblers. The guided tour includes a demonstration of ancient clog-making machines (carving and sanding). Please book ahead for guided group tours.

Immerse yourself in the exciting world of tennis and sports equipment through an exhibition retracing the major stages of this sport and the DONNAY adventure. The exhibition brings together iconic DONNAY objects (rackets, goodies, advertisements, etc.) as well as original archive images and videos of tennis highlights. Enough to draw a very lively and faithful trajectory of what the Couvinoise company was during the 20th century. Game, Set & Match!

In the corridors of the Espace Arthur Masson, don't trust your neighbour. Is he really what he seems? Do you dare visit the Musée Malgré-Tout where you might be transformed into a werewolf?

Grab your fancy dress costumes, Treignes awaits you for a spine-chilling day!
