This little museum is well worth the modest entry fee. On view is a wealth of textbooks, original exercise books, registers, reports, school furniture, and teaching equipment. Notwithstanding that it represents the French education system around the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there is plenty to appeal to anyone of any nationality, who is partial to a little nostalgia...

A very nice museum where you can see how schools were a century ago. The collevtions are impresive and the whole atmosphere is just right. Inexpensive and beautiful. A must see.

Not a big museum, but it was quite interesting. My daughter really enjoyed trying out writing with the pen and ink. I enjoyed the display about the student army training.

Not large, but also no large fee to enter (3.5 for adult, children till certain age for free). Nice to sit in the old class and be able to write. Especially for the ipad generation. ☺

Small but sweet, and cheap. Interesting for me as I have previously worked in a English alternative and it was interesting to see the similarities and differences. Good for kids who can learn to write with a dip pen and ink.

A small museum inside the old city. Its nicely set up ad I could actually reminisce my own school days. It nice to show the children of today how classrooms looked and operated "back in the day". Only a few euro entrance but worth a look.

A small but interesting museum about local schools and schooling in the past. You can have a go at writing with an old fashioned ink pen and be appalled at the dunce hats with two ears and 'donkey' written on them. Friendly staff.

A stark reminder of bygone school days when teachers taught and pupils did as they were told! Play time included hopscotch and other similar games - no phones or electronic games
