About the venue

19 rue Principale, 67130 Neuviller-la-Roche
  • Musée, salle d'exposition

Neuviller la Roche, a mountain town, with steep slopes, ungrateful soil, difficult to exploit, its population was once made up of peasant workers. Weavers, working on hand-looms, with one or two cows in the stable, they lived modestly from the products of their land. The museum, a witness to the history of Ban-de-la-Roche, immerses you in the world of traditional crafts and objects of yesteryear and makes you relive the gestures of yesteryear.
