The Guild Museum depicts the history of Southern Burgundy's drafting school, where the art of drawing was applied to building trades.

The institution was founded in 1871 in Romanèche-Thorins by Pierre-François Guillon, a Master Craftsman with the "Devoir de Liberté" order. The carpenter's drawing skills and an original piece of craftsmanship were judged to limit admission to the most talented tradesmen. The museum also examines the guild's history through a major collection donated by Mr. Guillon: drawings and models by students during their attendance, carpentry masterpieces, plus guild objects and documents.
In 2009, Unesco listed traditional carpentry and then in 2010 the guild trades as part of humanity's intangible cultural heritage.
