L'Ecomusée du Viroin vous accueille avec son exposition photos Portraits Animaux consacrée aux compagnons domestiques.

Remontez l'histoire pour mieux comprendre le rôle qu'ont joué ces animaux essentiellement domestiques dans la croissance économique des secteurs agricole et industriel.

Compagnons amicaux

Issues des collections de l'Ecomusée du Viroin, les photos témoignent de la relation étroite qui unissait les hommes à ces compagnons amicaux et essentiels au quotidien, jusqu'à l'émergence de la société de consommation.

En réponse à celles-ci, d'autres clichés contemporains représentant une vision actuelle de notre rapport aux animaux.

Des illustrations fortes et percutantes de la société d'hier et d'aujourd'hui !

Treignes invites young and old to take part in various horrible activities in Treignies on 30 October 2016.

Are you scared of the big bad wolf? Then watch your step when you are in the woods near the Eco-museum of Viroin, or you just might end up being his next meal!

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!
