Musée Départemental des Arts & Traditions Populaires - Château de Champlitte

This museum brings back memories of past-time activities and objects of the “Haute-Saône”. Furniture, souvenirs, itinerant odd jobs, reconstituted workshops. Popular medicine, pharmacy, room which brings to mind the links with Mexico. This museum created in 1954 by Albert Demard is set in the prestigious frame of the castle of which the typical front of the Renaissance is inserted in a body of building with a 18th rotunda. The rural life of the 19th century, then the life of the village with its craftsmen (working of the leather, hemp, iron, pottery and lace) are alternately evoked as well as its communal places of reception (the grocer's shop, the coffee shop, the school or the funfair).

Il présente un aperçu de la société rurale à l'aube du XXe siècle au travers de reconstitutions ou de dioramas permettant l'immersion au sein d'une communauté villageoise où rites et croyances populaires rythmaient le temps.
