Lonely Planet review for Musée de la Vie Wallonne
Close to the base of Montagne de Bueren is the Musée de la Vie Wallonne. Everything that's Walloon and old-fashioned is extolled here, from 12th-century Mosan metalwork to old wooden puppets and biscuit moulds (capable of making mega 5kg biscuits). There are reconstructed ateliers (workshops) from various trades including candlestick-making, basket-weaving and cooperage, as well as industries specifically associated with this region like glass-blowing that's still practised in Dinant.
It's all housed in a restored convent and makes a fascinating amble through the region's past.
