Musée Tchantchès information
Outremeuse's rakish resident, Tchantchès, appeared one day between two stones in 760, in Charlamagne's reign. This folklore hero and city mascot refused to drink his mother's milk at birth, instead screaming for pékèt (local gin). Despite age he's still working, starring in puppet theatres. The Musée Tchantchès displays his costumes and other paraphernalia; it's best to visit when there's a show on.
