Musée des Métiers et des Légendes de la Forêt d'Orléans



Lets go for a walk in the woods! Situated in the château grounds, this small museum reveals all there is to know about the connection between man and forest: from wood and forest trades to legends, imaginary creatures and white ladies which have developed in popular imagination. Enough to send a shiver down your spine...

The museum presents legends and trades of the forest: lumberjacks, wheelwrights, blacksmiths, etc... Legends of wolves, birds and the forest itself (due to the strange shape of the trees), not to mention white ladies and fairies. A temporary exhibition is on display between April and October with various themes for 2011: medicine and remedies of old.
