Featuring a range of reconstituted businesses and workshops from the early 20C (a Rochefort bar, hat shop, pharmacy, grocery, forge...), this old 1900 warehouse is a picturesque reminder of a past era. Temporary exhibitions devoted to the history of a brand or a product complete the visit. Superb museum gift shop.
