Discover the secrets of the Folon Foundation!

Do you like to have fun, make puzzles and solve riddles? Discover the secret of the Folon Foundation, with your family, with the help of the Ludicofolon. Open the magical book by Jean-Michel Folon and he will show you his drawn dreams! A very beautiful adventure awaits you in the heart of the Solvay Park in La Hulpe.

You can also visit the museum with the little ones during a unique poetic experience: discover the artist’s book and meet his characters. For 40 minutes, the works of Folon come to life through magical games and manipulations with which children can discover their senses, see fabrics, hear, touch and feel.

Finally, the Folon Foundation invites you to celebrate your birthday in a creative and fun way. The workshops offer two fun formulas. The first, the “Bird Portrait”, invites you to catch the birds that you have met in the museum by means of a drawing. Give them shape and color in the workshops and then release them on a large sheet in a blue sky of watercolor. “Children: on stage!” proposes to spot characters or decorative elements in the museum. Draw them in the workshops, cut them out, give them colors so that the sets and characters can integrate the story that the animator will show live on the stage of a miniature theater.
