Last February, on the occasion of his election as honorary president of the Living Museum of the old trades, his first president, Gaby the arm expressed his vivid emotion and he happily narrated the origin of this association.The head of rural family assistance (now RADM), François Othert, asked him in 1978 to find solutions to bail out the caisses. The needs are such that a large-scale solution must be found; This is how the first feast of the Harvest is organized. Its success and the enthusiasm it arouses, exceed the expectations of the organizers and the 150 volunteers mobilized for the occasion, so that the experience is renewed every two years and then embellished with other old crafts which find quickly Their places.

The ADMR finds its budgetary balance and an independent association is created in 1985, for the management of what is already called “old trades”. Until the General Assembly of 3 February 2018, it will bear the name of Micheriou Koz ar Vro.

Asked to provide a space for storing the equipment, some municipalities of the peninsula refuse, even if their mayors recognize the audience that the rural festivals win. Finally it is Laurent Kermorgan who proposes the old henhouse of the village of Argol, to welcome the old trades.

It is therefore in the summer of 1987 that opens the museum, every Monday in July and August, with an average of 500 visitors each time. From the following year, it is also possible to visit on Thursdays and it is eight to ten thousand visitors who will parade every year; Later we will open in pre-season to receive the school groups.

Finally, in 1997, the community of municipalities acquired the Kerampran Farm to host the museum. After almost three years of work, the equipment crosses the street and the association moves into the new buildings in May 2 000.

and Gaby to conclude:

“and 23 years of presidency have gone like this…” ».
