The Laundry museum offers a voyage through the history of soap, washing and the working and living conditions of the washerwomen in Spa.

This original museum is located in the Vieux Spa quarter, at the heart of this spa town and birthplace of the modern spa industry.

Your visit to the Laundry Museum


Around twenty rooms will show you how women - and sometimes men - did the laundry from ancient times right up to today.

You can admire the first wooden washing machines and discover products used before the invention of soap. You'll also see some amazing machines in operation.

Enjoy an hour of surprises and information on the daily life of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
