If you're not in a rush, you should see the School Museum. However, let me point out that it's far more educational if you can read in French, because many of the exhibited items are posters, pieces of information that are very interesting, but are not translated. You can also find replicas of old classrooms, which could be quite an... More

Entertaining visit to an historic school setting with an old fashioned classroom set aside for you to relive your schooldays and practice perfect handwriting.

For 3euros this small museum is a great place to visit if you have an hour spare. Laid out like a 19th century school room, it's full of interesting posters and apparatus from period. Cute little place, won't occupy for too long though.

This a very small museum. Nothing much to see just a couple of rooms. Nice experience but very brief and small. Nice friendly people.

A really nice way to spend an hour, you experience writing with ink and a quill, whilst sitting on the original desk and chairs. The rooms are well displayed and you are given an information sheet in your own language explaining each area. The entrance fee is 3 euros which is great value for money. Well worth a visit

To be honest, the museum is a bit dull (and it takes 10 minutes to see everything) but in the last classroom you get the chance to write with an old fashioned pen and generally plaster yourself with ink, if you are as incompetent as me.

This museum is well worth a visit. Until not so very long agao it was a working school! It has been preserved exactly as it was. Desks with attched bench seats and inkwells containing ink for the nibbed pens! It is exactly how a small village was and you can easily imagine the school at work with 'maitres', 'maitresses' and...

ok to pop into in the old city but not too much to see. I found the anti alcohol posters the most surprising and interesting
