On the banks of the Oise lateral canal, the town of Longueil-Annel tells the story of inland waterway transport. In an authentic setting, this typical bargemen's town, with its pretty brick houses, transports you to another way of life. Enjoy an idyllic walk on the banks of the canal and watch the Janville lock in operation. Take the time to listen to the stories in the audio booths and take part in the various waterway activities. Immerse yourself in the life of the bargemen in the museum-house: learn about their daily experiences with a look at the history of the village, films, audiobooks, models and photos.
Continue your visit on the Freycinet barge, a museum on the water which also opens the doors to the bargemen's world. You can visit the cockpit and hold, as well as enjoying photo reports, audio testimonials and temporary exhibitions.
