Not a big museum, but it was quite interesting. My daughter really enjoyed trying out writing with the pen and ink. I enjoyed the display about the student army training.

Small but sweet, and cheap. Interesting for me as I have previously worked in a English alternative and it was interesting to see the similarities and differences. Good for kids who can learn to write with a dip pen and ink.

A small museum inside the old city. Its nicely set up ad I could actually reminisce my own school days. It nice to show the children of today how classrooms looked and operated "back in the day". Only a few euro entrance but worth a look.

A small but interesting museum about local schools and schooling in the past. You can have a go at writing with an old fashioned ink pen and be appalled at the dunce hats with two ears and 'donkey' written on them. Friendly staff.

A stark reminder of bygone school days when teachers taught and pupils did as they were told! Play time included hopscotch and other similar games - no phones or electronic games

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
