From 1983 to 1997, an associative management
The Folklore Comtois association mobilised public funds and provided substantial associative funds for the creation of the Museum and to ensure its operation. In 1997, the association handed over the Museum to the public authorities both to guarantee its future and to free itself from a management that had become too important.
The relay by public authorities
A mixed syndicate was created in 1997, made up of the Conseil général du Doubs, the District of Grand Besançon and the Commune of Nancray. Today, it is made up equally of the Department of Doubs and Grand Besançon Métropole.
