Having experienced the Dou Dou on more than one occasion I found this museum to give an excellent description of the history and rituals associated with this UNESCO recognized event. Exhibits are trip-lingual and interactive making this the perfect museum of the whole family.

The modern approach to artistically present the history of Mons was clever and enjoyable. It was stimulating and interactive. Older children would like this type of presentation. There was a balanced combination of historical and modern items. It wasn't very helpful in terms of English...More
