The museum "La Maison d'Autrefois" presents in nine thematic rooms, furniture, clothes, regional headdresses and hats, tools and everyday objects.
The LECLANCHE pile is also represented there with two showcases dedicated to the pile factory formerly established on the commune. Let yourself be transported from the living room of a Poitevin house to that of religious objects, passing through the 19th century bourgeois costume room and that of Poitevin hats and headdresses.
Still other rooms will seduce you with objects of woodwork, carpentry, old toys, a collection of the first TSF stations, including one in Galena...
Many trades are represented: from the blacksmith to the winemaker and from the country guard to the midwife!
The museum association invites you to discover its new exhibition gallery in the annex of the town hall. The permanent gallery is dedicated to the history of the village, from Louis I the Pious, son of Charlemagne, born in Chasseneuil until the 1900s. During the summer, this gallery hosts a temporary exhibition.
In 2021, for the opening of this new room, the museum will present works by Andrée Boiné (1910-1997), a self-taught artist from a neighboring commune in Vouillé la Bataille.
