In the 18th century, Fourneau St. Michel was a metallurgy center, owned by the abbey at St. Hubert. In 1966, with the property now in government hands, several museums were established. The Museum of Iron is housed in the old foundry, and draws most of its exhibits from the history of the building. The P.J. Redoute museum features a collection of works by the renowned painter of flowers. The open air Museum of Walloon Rural Life is a collection of dwellings gathered from several different regions, scattered over a 1.5 mile trek. The Ardennes Draft Horse Museum is housed in one of these buildings. The Museum of the Ardennes is a footpath with explanatory panels leading through the St. Michel National Forest.
