    The Musée des Maisons Comtoises invites you to wander around and discover new things. Enjoy this unique experience where heritage, activities, exhibitions and events all come together!
    An air of architecture - The Musée des Maisons Comtoises is made up of 35 buildings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, from all over Franche-Comté: farms, workshops, communal ovens, chapels, etc. They represent the main types of rural architecture in Franche-Comté, specific to the different regions. Each one bears witness to the unique link between a society and its environment. During your visit, plunge into the intimacy of the inhabitants of a region, of a social group, from 1750 to 1950!
    The park offers an environment where you can disconnect from everyday life and reconnect with nature. Awaken your senses in the vegetable and themed gardens and in the garden of simple plants organised around its kiosk. Take a breather by the pond, sit under a tree... Explore nature at the bend in the path, in the undergrowth, in the orchard and follow in the footsteps of the site's wild hosts!
    The museum is like a small farm, with sheep, cows, donkeys, goats, chickens and geese thriving in the fresh air! Take a tour of the workshops, kitchens and gardens, discover the skills involved, discover a taste of the Comtoise region, take home some forgotten seeds or build a tree house! This unique museum-park is a great place to talk, share and learn, for novices and experts alike, and for all ages! The museum à la carte The Museum Restaurant welcomes you to the heart of the site.

    In 2024, the museum will be adding to its collection of rural buildings from the Franche-Comté region with the reassembly of a farm shed from the Haut-Doubs region dating from the 1960s. This type of building proliferated in the French countryside after the Second World War, in the wake of the mechanisation and industrialisation of agriculture. Waltefaugle, a company based in the Haute-Saône region, specialised in this type of metal construction. The hangar that will be housed in the museum actually comes from the factories of this industrial jewel of the Comtois region. In addition to its architectural interest, this agricultural building will provide a new showcase for the museum's agricultural machinery and tools, which are currently under-presented. From the hoe to the harrow, from the scythe to the combine harvester, visitors will be able to discover (or rediscover) these collections in an immersive and educational way.
