Binche, Belgium – February 2006 – Museum

To go along with the Binche Festival, they have a museum of costumes. Of particular note are the ‘Gilles’ costumes that are featured during the festival. A Gilles is Belgian/French for Clown.

The museum had an impressive collection of costumes, and was a welcome respite from the crowds outside.
