Expositions • Permanent exhibitions  

First of all historical documents introduce you to the subject: you can admire old costumes but also the oldest Gille mask known to us. After that you learn all about the different events taking place according to the particular calendar of the Binche carnival (drum rehearsals, “Soumonces”, “ Trouilles de Nouilles”, Shrove Sunday, Monday and live Shrove Tuesday - the day when the Gilles come out - firsthand).

Several exhibition rooms of the pedagogical section give you the opportunity to discover the work of the craftsmen of the Binche carnival.

Free audio-guides in English, Dutch and French for individual visitors.
