The Museum boasts a lovely selection of books about the Celts in its shop. Some of these documents can be downloaded from our website, while others can be ordered via the site or purchased from the shop.

Guided tours

Guided tours of the Museum cover two floors. To make your experience as easy as possible, seat sticks are available from reception for visitors. Rest areas (chairs and benches) are available in the rooms.

Classic guided tour

Our guide will introduce you to the world of the Celts in the Ardennes by talking about the items on display. These archaeological finds come from digs that have been completed throughout the region.
By analysing these archaeological finds together with ancient texts and Celtic iconography, the guide will introduce you to the day-to-day lives of these former inhabitants of the Ardennes.
As well as their comments, the guide will give visitors the opportunity to handle replicas of objects including chain mail, pottery and fibulas.

Workshops for €2 per person

Fire-lighting and talisman workshop

Discover the different techniques used by the Celts to light fires (friction, percussion etc.). Try one out yourselves: a Celtic fire starter!
As well as the explanations about fire-lighting techniques, you will be able to make your own wooden talisman with your name in Ogham (an ancient alphabet descended from the Celts).

Basketry workshop

From wicker to hazel wood…anything can be woven into a basket!
Learn about basketry techniques by creating a small wicker (or hazel wood) and rattan basket.

Participants will be able to take what they have made home with them.

Workshops for €3 per person

Forging workshop

With this workshop, participants get the chance to learn about a very important craft that was essential in the Iron Age: forging.
After a demonstrator by your tutor, participants hammer the iron to create a belt clip that they can take home with them.
Workshop organised in partnership with the Musée du Domaine Provincial du Fourneau Saint-Michel, who have generously allowed us to use one of their forges.

Cookery workshop (from 1 April to 31 October)

Make little cakes, sweet or savoury, it’s up to you, with ingredients used by the Celts. Once you’ve made your dough, you just need to cook your little cake in the oven and then eat it.
Bon appétit!
