    1st site: The House of Days and Fields: - A century of tractors - Two centuries of craftsmanship: agricultural equipment and tools - Three centuries of half-timbered buildings - A housing and a room from the beginning of the 20th century reconstituted A room class, a hair salon, a butcher and a café-grocery store, a room dedicated to sewing have been recreated. Milking, making butter and cheese are also featured in a room in the old cheese dairy. Another room is devoted to laundry.

    Temporary exhibitions: currently, Brienne, behind the trenches, exhibition devoted to the First World War (1914-1918). From May, exhibition on the old cheese dairy which now houses the eco-museum.

    2nd site: The Boutique (Blacksmithing, cartwright and farriery workshop still in working order): A past to the rhythm of the horse's pace, and hammer blows on the anvil.
