In the heart of the old town, the museum reveals the different facets of an artisanal past that has marked the history of the village.
Since the Middle Ages, Alby-sur-Chéran has experienced intense activity linked to the leather trades. For several centuries, the shoemaking became the main resource of the town and provided a living for a large part of its inhabitants.
Nowadays, the Place du Trophée and its arcades under which the stalls were nestled, retain traces of this long artisanal tradition.
