Carnival Binche will not be held this year due to the epidemic. The International Carnival and Mask Museum invites you to experience the carnival in a different way.
The Interpretation Center was opened in November 2018, on the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the recognition of Binche Carnival by UNESCO, allowing an approach through the senses. See the costumes and masks. Hear music and testimonials from actors. Touching fabrics and feathers. Inhale four perfumes: the straw with which we fill the hump of Jill; The orange was thrown into the crowd. Oysters, Taste on Tuesday Shrove; Mimosa, the flower that symbolizes spring.
The Interpretation Center is presenting two new experiences this year, developed by Vectro Exhibitions, which use new technologies.
