  • How did Breton country folk live in 1920? You'll see, at the Ferme d'Antan. This ecomuseum at Plédéliac takes you back in time, with costume, furniture and real live animals.

  • It's hard for us to imagine three generations living together in one room that's just 10 metres square.

In the farmyard, children learn traditional Breton games. Skittles, hoops and stilts are very popular. To complete the picture, there's a pedagogical garden behind the house where aromatic plants, traditional cereals and seasonal vegetables are grown. It's all very true to life.
