The Arthur Masson Centre, dedicated to the Belgian writer, an original visit in the heart of the superb Virion valley in Belgium.

The centre, with its audio guide tours, allows visitors the chance to discover the rural world of the Ardennes from 1930 to 1960, as well as the traditional Walloon language through Arthur Masson's work.

The original decor plunges you into a village square in the village of Treignes. The charming square is flanked by the three old schools of Treignes: the kindergarden, the girls' school and the boys' school, which houses the exhibition.


Trignolles: audio guided tour of the Ardennes of 1930 to 1960


Have you heard of Trignolles and Toine Culot? It's Treignes and its Major, as immortalised by Arthur Masson, also known as the Pagnol Wallon.

The indoor route invites you to experience the atmoshpere of an authentic Ardennes village for 1 hour 15 minutes. There are dialogues in Walloon and the audio guides are available in French, English, Dutch and German.

School in the old days
