It gives you a good idea of Breton village life in the 19th century. If your French is not good however you will miss out on some of their talks as conducted in French only.

“Fascinating glimpse into a gone-by life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Two km south of Quistinc is the 'living museum' of Poul Fetan - a pretty village of thatched cottages complete with a working pottery and bake house, that preserves the traditional crafts and farming practices of 19th century rural Brittany.
For centuries the village of Poul-Fetan was home to 4 or 5 families, and was inhabited until 1970. It was acquired by the Quistinic Community in 1977 and restored. There are a variety of daily demonstrations which include wool spinning, crepe making, Breton games, washerwomen, head-dress starching and hand milking the cows. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would suggest allowing about 4 hours for a leisurely tour of the village and watching most of the demonstrations. There is even an Inn where you will be able to sample traditional food and drink of the era.
