Currently housing 22 buildings from the Nord Pas de Calais region, the Open Air Museum shows the wide range of types of building from the Flanders, Artois, Picardy and Hainaut regions. Houses with thatched roofs, barns, and workshops to name but a few have been saved from destruction and rebuilt in a setting that is true to life. Built over several hectares, this park relates aspects of rural life and regional memories. The first fruits of a village for handicraft, arts and popular culture, this is a place to enjoy and to learn and exchange. An original and colourful walk amongst the various buildings and gardens where collections, exhibitions, craftsmen and artists can be found… this is a visit to a site still in the stages of development.
